[Bug 704880] [NEW] [arrandale] Xinerama gets wrong screen information [lucid]

Binary package hint: xorg

Well, I only think that this has to do with Xinerama.

I dock my Dell E6410 laptop. Docking station has a DVI monitor
connected. Ubuntu Lucid puts the DVI monitor on the right, while it is
physically on the right. So I move it to the left and a bit up as the
lower border of the screens are on the same level.

Now when I maximize window, it takes 3/4 of the monitor's screen or
spans through two screens. See attached photo.

Somehow the windows think that the smaller laptop screen is on the left
and the larger one is on the right, while this is the opposite.
