The main disadvantage as it seems is poor window
handling in Xinerama. For example, if I try to maximize
window on one monitor the window doesn't fill whole
screen just because there is slit on the second monitor
(i.e. same virtual desktop but the other Xinerama
head). See attachment (80kB screenshot).

The second feature I would LOVE to see is WindowMaker's
option "Window cannot appear completely out of
desktop". See, if I switch my Xinerama off, Fluxbox
remembers position of many windows, and places them
automatically out of desktop! That should actually
never happen!

Fluxbox version 0.9.9-1 on Xfree 4.3.0 (Debian Sarge)

    the slit on the secon monitor has nothing to do with the
    behavior. fullscreen and maximize work only on the head
    where the window is located atm. and thats precisly the way
    kde and windowmaker do it.
    maybe there should an option to "ignore" screen-borders but
    thats all. so far i cant see the "poor" window handling in
    xinerama-mode.

    the other featurerequest is more useful.
