nVidia TwinView Dual Head problem (Rev 2)

I edited '/root/xorg.conf' per your suggestion (see attached). No 
change. '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' appears the same.

It looks like the card "sees" Monitor1, because when I do anything on 
the KDE desktop on Monitor0 I can see changes in the color bands on 
Monitor1 (still a clone, although an inperfect one).

Any other suggestions?
