[Bug 710912] [NEW] Compiz grid edges do not work with nvidia twinview


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Ubuntu 11.04 Natty - all updates installed -
Compiz Version: 1:
Nvidia Drivers: 260.19.29-0ubuntu1

The Compiz Grid plugin, which is activated by default in Unity does not
recognize edges between monitors with nvidia Twinview (monitors set side
by side). Keyboard shortcuts (CRTL+ALT+"right arrow") work perfectly.

Expected behavior:
When dragging a window to the right edge of the left monitor, once the mouse is near the edge, compiz grid should give a preview for resizing the window to fill the right side of the left monitor (similar to when it is dragged to the left edge). Once the mouse passes to the right monitor it should give a preview to resize to the left half of the right monitor.

Current behavior:
The "edges" between monitors are completely ignored. Resizing windows works fine when dragging to either the left edge of the left side monitor or the right edge of the right side monitor. Keyboard shortcuts work as intended.
