Good to know it is just a software setting. I tried asking on the nVidia forums but the jerks just ignored me. I guess this question is not 1337 enough.

What happens if you span two monitors with a movie window? I have not done much with dual monitors on my 8800 but my 6800 craps out if I try to do any fancy accelerated graphics or video overlay in a spanned window.

Most of the bling that ultramon provides I just do not find handy. To each their own. I would really like to see the source code.
