Display tool would only list one monitor.

The window manager problems seem to be related to "desktop effects" being
set but failing when I added a video card. Manually starting metacity in
a new X session before losing focus on my terminal , and then going through
the menus to disable desktop effects seemed to work.

Now the only problem is that most apps only startup in Screen0, and I cannot
drag anything from Screen0 to Screen1.
