xscreensaver on dual-monitor setup

I have a Twin-view configuration setup with the LCD monitor and TV. It 
used to be that xscreensaver treated those independently and launched an 
individual whatever_the_screensaver_was_selected on each of them. After 
the  recent update of xscreensaver-gl-extras-gss-5.06-2.fc8 and
xscreensaver-gl-extras-5.06-2.fc8 my setup is treated as one common area 
and a single screensaver is launched in the middle. It looks kinda ugly, 
because of the significantly different resolution between  the display 

So I am wondering whether the current behavior this is a bug or feature 
and is it possible to turn back the old behavior without rolling back to 
the previous version? Maybe some command-line parameter?

I'm running FC7 x86_64 and FC8 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
