Excellent new ! I just installed the mercurial version on my desktop,
and it works pretty well. The display has two 20" monitors in 1400x1050
managed by NVidia's TwinView.

A small problem found: dwm crashed with an X error (request code=54,
error code=4, BadPixmap with X_FreePixmap) when I do this:

- Open Firefox with dmenu (last mercurial version) in the left screen.
- Open an Xterm with alt+enter.
- Run xrandr in the term.
- Exit the term with 'exit'.

Hope it will help.
