RE: KDE + TwinView on Sid vs. Sarge

Under the desktop, I do have the Xinerama test for the taskbar, it does identify the screens, and the taskbar does display on only one screen (screen 2) as it should, but when I maximize a window, it spreads across both screens.  I would like to change this behavior back to just maximizing on the one screen, just like it was under Sarge.

I have a similair setup, only with 2 graphic cards. Running SID and no problem 
with Xinerama extension from Xfree. Have you setup xfree configuration 
correctly and does it use Xinerama? I've noticed Xinerama support on 3.2.x 
has been improved comparing 3.1.x. Maximizing a window and it stay on that 

Look at your xfree setup and then search for Xinerama option in configuration 
panel of desktop/panel (I suppose using dutch translations.)
