Hello and welcome to "freeglut". I apologize for the time required to get back to you but I have been out of town.
I have very little experience with multi-head systems and none (that I know of) with xinerama. One thing I noted with my Linux installation on a multi-head system is that I couldn't get a direct rendering context. That is probably a different problem from yours.
The support for "glutInitDisplayMode" in "freeglut" is not complete, to the best of my knowledge. I have a couple of questions to try to narrow down the problem:
(1) What operating system are you using?
(2) Are you using "freeglut" or the original GLUT?

Subject: [Freeglut-developer] Glut and xinerama
Bonjour a Tous,
Trying to develop a small graphic application using GLUT and
got trouble to have my windows content refresh when
'slidding' (or resizing) it on the screen 2 of my
xinerama screens (multi-head).
Other application (not glut) a working well. Glut example
I compile locally have the same trouble.
If the windows is partly on both screen only the screen 1
is refresh while screen 2 just show the window border, window
background showing other previous contents (as if on this
part the color was 'no color')...
I am pretty sure I am forgetting something withing
GLUT definition (a parameter within glutInitDisplayMode?).
Search all over Documentation found nothing relevant, could
some body give me a hint?
