JWM does not fully support 2 separate screens.. I have dual screen enabled (TwinView) using my Nvidia-173 OpengL drivers control panel (nvidia-settings)... When I maximise a window in the 2nd screen, it is very annoyingly sent to the 1st screen and maximised there instead! This does not happen with openbox...

So in JWM, when choosing screen positions for my 2nd screen, I must choose 'Clones', not 'Right of', etc...
This is not the only fullscreen bug, as Puppy Linux users will be aware.

    I have a dual monitor setup and I haven't noticed this problem (I can maximize windows on whatever screen I want) Can you be more specific? Also, it is good to post the specific SVN revision so I know exactly what to test against.

    Please do share other bugs. If I don't know about them they won't get fixed.

    OK, I just tested the latest JWM 579, and Separate X screens, with Xinerama enabled does now work as expected... Unlike openbox, I could still not get the desired effect without using Xinerama (which I don't care about, BTW)...
