It is called "zaphod mode" and supported by a few drivers. As drivers
move over to XRandR they often remove support for this mode as well
(intel, radeon) on the way; most don't have it yet.
Again, I see "xfdesktop4" crashing, not the nvidia driver. There are a
few other annoying things happen on the second screen as well (like: I
cannot click on two different items in the task bar until I move the
mouse pointer out of the whole bar and then in, else my click will be
ignored). You see nvidia crashing (it doesn't).

I'm interested in getting bugs fixed and I am willing to help if I can.
Seems I can't.
