I see. The Wikipedia article on Xinerama also alludes to this, quoting
someone "We were frustrated by ... being unable to move applications
from one [monitor] to another" -- that is, each monitor was a separate
screen. (Of course, that article manages to use the terms "display",
"screen", and "monitor" in very ambiguous ways.)

I've never seen a Xinerama-less multihead setup, hence the confusion.

Thanks Robert and Oscar.
