You will probably find that this is due to the QT 2 libraries are not compiled 
with Xinerama support. This probably will not be changed in woody. As for 
sid, QT3 (and KDE3) is currently compiled with Xinerama on i386. When KDE3 
enters sid, the optio should work. You may be able to get Ivan to enable 
Xinerama in Qt 2 for sid, but it may not be worth the hassle when KDE is just 
around the corner.
