3. Seperate x screens were available in 12.04.
4. No seperate x screens available, mouse goes off screen 1 at right and enters at left.
Cannot get mouse to second screen. Screen the mouse is trapped on is always primary.
The system lost my customised background images for the Dual Monitor set-up aswell.

I use Kubuntu with xfce as alternate login, both of which are affected.
