I have an intel graphics chipset on a laptop computer whose attached screen is 1280x800. This attaches to an external monitor whose resolution is 1920 x 1080. When I have this in my keys:

Mod4 Left :MacroCmd {MoveTo 0% 0%} {ResizeTo 50% 100%}
Mod4 Right :MacroCmd {MoveTo 50% 0%} {ResizeTo 50% 100%}
Mod4 Up :MacroCmd {MoveTo 0 0} {ResizeTo 100% 50%}
Mod4 Down :MacroCmd {MoveTo 0 50%} {ResizeTo 100% 50%}

The screen size is set to 1920x1080. Fluxbox sometimes changes the window size based on my laptop screen and sometimes based on the external monitor. (Since the desktop goes off the laptop's screen, I'd expect it to use only the external monitor.) Works fine when screen size is 1280x800.

If you go here:

You can see how the screen reacts to each command. Start with 01- and work your way to 07png. 03->04->05 displays the strangest behavior.
https://www.box.com/s/n0s49gwlkoe6522wc9yi/1/814579327/7559638819/1 - start there and click previous.

05*png looks how it should work, but you'll notice the key had to be pressed twice to get it to there.

    Sounds alot like bug #998

    @iateadonut, if this is still a problem for you, can you provide the output of "xrandr -q" and if not, do you recall whether the screens (laptop + external) overlapped, ie. shared some region?
