Issue Report: Multi-Monitor problems
hello,
everytime i activate my 2nd monitor, all my games start with a 3xxx x 19xx resolution.
the problem is, i cant reach the option/resolution button on the UI of most games, cause they are somewhere on the screen were i cant see them.
all i want to have is playing on my fullhd monitor and watch streams/videos/music on my second screen (16:10, 1680x resolution).

maybe a "starter" with video-option before the games will start and go fullscreen would help there.

Hardware? Drivers? Type of multi-monitor configuration?

sry, i know i forgot something :P

Hardware:
Intel Core2Q @ 3,6Ghz
Nvidia GTX 460

Software:
Driver is the Nvidia Experimental Driver 310
Ubuntu 12.10

My smaller one, 1680x1050, is on the left side, my FullHD, 1920x1080 in the right side.

On both the Unity Starter Sidebar is enabled, but i experiented a lot there, so the Starter-Position dont have an effect.
