Sorry haven't had time to test your patch here yet. But I did notice
that only Xinerama seems to report the correct number of screens -
XScreenCount(...) returns 1 whether I've got 1 or 2 monitors plugged in.

Yeah I believe this is what's known as "old style dual head mode" isn't
it? I couldn't get this working on my setup either.
