perfect.  your my new best friend!

xorg.conf will save now after entering credentials.  Ive tried to get
the 3rd monitor to be able to be used.  on logon screen, all 3 display
fine, then after you login, the 3rd monitor (on second card, sep x
screen) screen turns grey, can still see cursor and all, can get right
click menu, etc, but cannot drag anything to it.

ive uploaded conf here  http://paste.ubuntu.com/9590732/

in nvidia-settings, 2 monitors on xscreen0, first card, are set as
absolute (default, havent changed it yet)

on second card, xserver1,  theres no option for position.  which, i
swear there use to be before.  I thought I had all 3 set as cloned at
one point.  Can you not do that with 2 separate xservers?
