  dual monitor setup half second screen does not display some programs

Status in xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Same bug was present in Ubuntu 12.04 + unity (+/- compiz) for same
  machine, upgrade to 14.04 and switch to openbox did not help.  See
  screenshot: gnome-terminal is cut in half.  Any attempt to move it
  further right and it does not display anything further right than that
  line.  Openbox dock is cut off in the same spot(though sometimes also
  disappears entirely).  Some other applications(eg xterm) do display to
  the right of that line.
