I don't believe this is true. I myself use a dual screen X11 setup,
and I (usually) have no issues with the mouse at all. While not being
common, I do know there are a number of other people out there who use
this style of setup.

Unfortunately I don't usually use the _same_ application spread over
both screens. I'll try to use the example code once I'm back home to
see what happens.
