Actually that makes sense. TwinView only supports combining the X
screens of one GPU.

Can you try the following?

Your xorg.conf has comments from the newer version of nvidia-settings
that you were using earlier. Can you backup the current xorg.conf and
generate a new one with "sudo nvidia-xconfig"? After rebooting, try
using the System -> Preference -> Display configuration panel instead
of nvidia-settings to adjust the layout of your displays.
