Right, I used 1680 virtual screen size on the CRT because my background
pic was made for 2x1680 not 1600+1680.

Not sure, will test on sunday (I sit in front of another monitor atm).
IIRC the 2 problems I had when playing around with those settings were 

- CRT is set to 1680x1050 resolution with a really bad VertRefresh of
- Xinerama desktop (with screen1 leftof screen0) get sized 3320x1200,
  which makes part of the screen inaccessible on the Laptop display.
  Thus I don't have a panel/systray anymore and "loose" 150 Pixel in
  height on that display.

My desired setup would be 3280x1050 (height on both screens). Do you
have any idea why the setup worked with Xfree86 4.3? Either the old X11
"stretched" the 1050 resolution to 1200 on the CRT or somehow set the
CRT to 1600x1050 - which Xorg doesn't do (not even when setting Modes to
1600x1050 only ).
