  Unable to drop/ place files and links on second screen in dual screen
  set up

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After updating from Xubuntu 13.10 (amd64) to Xubuntu 14.04 LTS (amd64)
  I have encountered a bug with my dual screen set up.

  Running the XOrg screen driver (xserver-xorg-video-nouveau), it is
  possible to place/ drag and drop files and links on my left screen
  desktop. This is also the desktop that contains the system icons (e.g.
  removable drives, rubbish bin).

  However, I I try to drag and drop a file or link on the right screen
  desktop, it will not "stick" and "fly back" to its original location
  on the left screen. Additionally, I noticed that, when dragging the
  file over the troubled desktop, the "placement squares" don't show up.
  They do on the functioning left screen.

  Although I have a NVIDIA Corporation GK107 [GeForce GTX 650] Geforce I
  do run the XOrg driver since it gives me the best results with the
  software I'm using frequently. However, when I tested this during my
  initial install of Trusty, I noticed that I did not encounter this bug
  with the proprietary NVidia 304.117 driver (331.38 did not work for me
  at all). Running the NVidia 304.117 driver, it was possible to drag
  and drop/ place files and links on both screen desktops. Also the
  "placement squares" appeared on both screens when a file was dragged
  over it.

  After returning to the XOrg driver, the problem reoccurred, and placement on the right screen was again not possible.
