Comment (by danielk):

 I understood why you were doing this, but your fix doesn't get rid of the
 Xinerama setup in appearance so you can still set this, but it doesn't
 work with your patch applied.

 It looks like GetNumberOfXineramaScreens(void) was changed at some point
 to return the number of screens even when Xinerama is not supported; which
 sort of defeats the purpose of this function. This is why the Xinerama
 config option is still available when you don't have xinerama. But as you
 point out, you can only but the video on a separate screen if you have
 Xinerama, so needing to configure this for only adds confusion.

 I was hoping you would be able to tell me these things to save me the time
 of looking into it.
