Turns out that there are a lot of people who like this "feature". I 
don't happen to be one of them but that does not change anything. What I 
did was take my large, two screen wide image and open it in Gimp and 
split it. Then I just put the halves on the appropriate monitor and it 
has the appearance of spanning them.Not the slickest solution but it 
does work.
