I tested this out and of course it works on my single monitor setup. 

Since then I've chatted with Adam Jackson (Redhat) on #xorg he advised
that if XRRQueryVersion() returns >= 1.2, Java should go ahead and use
RANDR even if Xinerama is present.

So I'd like to go ahead and work on a patch for this. Could anyone
confirm if this is ok and that I'd not be duplicating effort?

I've still not opened a bug on the Java bug database, do I need to do
that to be tidy?

Any tips on how to go about writing a jtreg test for this?
