Using XDarwin 1.0.4, enabling Xinerama for multiple monitors works a little oddly. If the two heads are different sizes, things like the GNOME panel across the bottom of the screen don't show up on the second screen (it's painting off the bottom of the display).
Also multiple display pagers such as in enlightenment and fvwm2 treat stuff in the right hand monitor as the right hand display area, while clicking in them causes the display to zoom over to the left side of the screen.
Disabling Xinerama works in the way you'd expect, everything is stuck in the left hand display (0.0). You can, however put stuff in 0.1 if you change your DISPLAY variable. It is not possible to get into that display with an Xwindows mouse pointer, though. If you click on an xterm you've created in 0.1, your pointer zooms back to 0.0.
So in either case, multiple monitors aren't behaving in a really useful fashion.
