I think the problem is the use of "-screen 1".  I've never used the
-screen option myself, so apologies if I'm way off the mark, but I seem
to recall that it was introduced to allow a single X server to use
more than one physical display.

If this is what you are trying to achieve, you need to start a single
X server with both -screen 0 and -screen 1.

If you really do want two displays, try dropping the -screen option (or
use -screen 0 for both), and use the :1.0 form for the second DISPLAY.
