Are you using graphics hardware that only fully supports 3D up to a
certain total virtual display size (ie the two monitors side by side)?
 Intel chips a few years old (not sure exactly which ones) had this
problem if the total width exceeded 2048.  Therefore if the second
monitor takes it above 2048 wide you will get this error.  On 12.04
you could use Unity-2d to get round the problem.  13.04 basically does
not work unless 3D support is available.
