If you find a solution, I'd be happy to hear about it.

 I used to use:

 Option          "IgnoreDisplayDevices"  "TV"
in the Section "Device" of the XF86config-4 file, now with X.org it
 still works, but frankly I don't know if the setting was migrated or
 simply it works out of the box.


in my DualHead (provided by Xorg) Setup, I use

       Option          "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0"
       Screen          0

       Option          "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-1"
       Screen          1

while in TwinView (provided by the NVidia drivers) I use

       Option          "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0, CRT-1"

I suppose this should solve your problem, too.

Especially, it is quite nice for creating multi monitor desktops.
