Interesting!  Martin, do you know if these bugs are still present in kwin?

For what it's worth, twin will not be replaced in the R14.0 cycle, but
kwin should be available as an unsupported option for R14.0 so that we
have time to find and fix problems such as the one you described above.

Also, I use multiple monitors on a daily basis, and have a older triple
head setup specifically for testing unusual configurations, so this issue
would have shown itself very quickly once kwin testing progressed to that
point. ;-)
