   Hi Dan,

   I have been preparing the fix for the integration into

   If you could put it into IcedTea that'd be beneficial
   as well in case someone runs into a problem.

   BTW, have you thought by any chance about the other part
   of the problem - proper xinerama detection? On the newer X
   servers we detect the xinerama extension (since it's always
   present and active), and assume that the screens are under
   xinerama. That leads to some nasty issues. I'm still not
   quite sure how to do the detection properly.
