Problems with DualView mode & Xmanager

I noticed recently that a slightly newer version of the 1.3.9 Xmanager had been released. However, upon installing it I noticed a problem when I have my video setup arranged as a DualView.

In such a configuration, the X Window that comes up does not function properly if it is located on the #1 monitor. The contents of the window will not update (i.e. it shows whatever bitmaps were last displayed in that section of the display) and any attempt to move the cursor into any portion of the window other than the title bar causes the cursor to suddenly jump to the left edge of the #1 monitor. If I grab the title bar and slide the window over to the #2 monitor, everything is OK.

My slightly older 1.3.9 version works fine in the DualView mode, so this is definately new behavior for this release. I would tell you which 1.3.9 version I had before, but I over-wrote it with the newer version before I noticed this problem.

Re: Problems with DualView mode & Xmanager

You can fix the problem as following:

1. Run Xconfig.
2. Click the Window tab.
3. In the Multiple Window Mode area, check the "Use Full Screen" box.
4. Restart Xmanager.

Hope this helps you.
