Description Cory Meisch 2004-05-27 10:14:31 UTC
I have nVidia's Twinview configured and running for two different monitors. This allows for two distinct desktops while still allowing for seamless sharing. With 2.6.3, I can maximize an app and it will resize correctly to fit the one screen. Later versions, the app will span both monitors.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Twinview
2. Upgrade to Gnome 2.6
3. Maximize an app and observe the spanning accross both desktops

Expected Results:  
Should maximize on the correct monitor
