FC10 - Gnome panel does not span dual display X screen

Hi, I upgraded to FC10 from FC8 and my Gnome-panel no longer spans both screens in my dual monitor configuration. This worked fine in FC8, and I can't seem to figure out how to make this config work in FC10.

I've tried Xinerama and Twinview, and various configurations in xorg.conf, and cannot seem to make it happen.

Can anyone tell me how to make both my panels (top and bottom) go across both screens?

Any info much appreciated!!

This was resolved - running two monitors and dual video cards. I had one monitor on each card; when I put both monitors on one card everything stayed the same except that the panels span both monitors now.
