Arrgh! this was my conclusion too, but it is very frustating to be able
to have two different resolutions (with double head configuration) on
each device and unable to set one device as a "clone" (reformated) of
the other...

Actually, what you can do is setup a panning domain, which will allow
you to clone both displays, yet have them run in different modes.  See
the driver README for more details and/or upgrade to 1.0-9625 and use
nvidia-settings to set it all up with the GUI.
