I'm guessing that you're using the NVidia drivers then. The problem is probably
that the NVidia drivers say they do XRANDR, but don't actually implement it
properly. You can work around this by setting the ARGYLL_IGNORE_XRANDR1_2
environment variable.

[There was a report recently that the very latest NVidia drivers may
 finally fix this problem, but I'd imagine that you'd need to make sure it
 works with your kernel and distribution:
