Just in case someone else out there is having this same problem; both video
cards must be set to the same bit depth for -multiplemonitors to work

Now if I could just get XWin compiled to see if the WM_DISPLAYCHANGE fix
will work...

        I have just reinstalled my machine and therefore had to do a fresh
of Cygwin.

        -multiplemonitors now works fine on my home machine, but for some
it still only uses one display on my computer at work. I'll have a look at
the log file and post back when I get a chance.

        One thing I have noticed, that might be a nice simple feature to add
this -

        If I start Xwin in -rootless mode at 1024x768, it creates an
invisible root
window at screen coordinates 0,0

If I then play a DirectX game that changes the display's resolution to
800x600, when I exit the game, the XWin invisible root window is now shifted
over to the right.

My fix would be simple:

If running in rootless mode and the resolution changes, move the invisible
root window back to 0,0.
