Oneiric, nvidia 280.13, and 2 X

I just upgraded and can confirm the desktop is screewy on start.

For me:
- Any program started with the session, i.e. IRC client, does not 
managed by the window manager
- Compiz crashes (Bug 740854)
- GDM flat out doesn't work
- Changing settings using NVIDIA-settings causes the desktop to crash


For beta1, Nvidia and dual screen seems to be a recipe for pain.
