Default Dual head setup, different resolution screens, virtual screen to big for smaller one

I've noticed this too with mine, Dell Inspiron 5150, 8.10, nVidia
GeForce FX Go5200, 32 MB video RAM, Restricted driver version 173
(Recommended). Laptop display is 1024, and the external is 1280. But
it's not entirely like the virtual screen is too big, the top & bottom
panels are right on the screen where they should be. I can mouse the
mouse above the top panel, but can't drag a window there. Doesn't bother
me enough to worry about it, though.
But mine isn't slow taking windows to the other screen...

Let me know what details of my system you want. if it'll help.
