GNOME won't like multihead much; it doesn't want to be on two displays
simultaneously. I haven't tried it but I bet it won't work well.

You could run GNOME on one of the two heads, maybe.

If multihead support was in XFree86 you'd probably see a lot more
interest in fixing this problem, since lots more developers would have
a multiheaded setup.
