Xinerama problem with xorg-7.3

I run with Xinerama and two screens.

Since the installation of xorg-7.3, I have had fights with circular
dependencies in xorg-libraries, gtk, cairo, and pango, but I managed to
work around these.

Now I have hit one that has me baffled!

I start my X server and it seems to come up fine, but, if I move my
cursor to the secondary window, I can't move it back! The left edge of
my secondary window is "solid" and impassible. It seems like a one-way

I have nVidia graphics and have disabled composite and start with
-ignoreABI as shown in UPDATING and things generally seem to work, but
the "second screen" issue is a major pain...especially since the window
manager is drawing windows in the secondary screen where I don't dare
move my cursor.
