It always uses the entire display. Can you post the new output
of `xrandr -q` after running the --right-of command.

Also, try moving a window past the edge of the screen. Either
Mod-l twice or Mod-j for the window at the bottom of the column
should do it. BTW, what version are you using? That looks like
dmenu that you're running, but newer versions use wimenu. I
believe that the last release that used dmenu was 3.6, and that
didn't support Xinerama.
