Just tracking down what the specific issues are and filing bug reports
may help.

GConf does fix this, assuming you have remote CORBA connections
working between the two machines in question (right now, I'm not sure
that's enabled by default). But we still would have to port all apps
to GConf. So that's a whole world of fixage that needs doing.

Another big step would be to make gnome-session handle this

Then another step is to find all component activations
(oaf_activate_from_id()) and make them per-display when
appropriate. There's at least one example of how to do this in
Nautilus, I'm not sure where it is.

Then the ongoing final step is to frequently test the multidisplay
setup and keep filing bugs when people break it...
