Do you have two video cards? I'm asking because I use the Xinerama extension with Twinview (two monitors plugged into the same NVIDIA card) and I can start 3D apps no problem - whether they are windowed or full-screen. But I've heard of people having problems when they have two separate video cards, one of each monitor.
