After I upgraded to Fedora 19 (fedup method) my Xorg won't set dual monitors on the order I want... Bellow is my xorg.conf created by nvidia-settings.

If I use nvidia-settings to create that configuration and "apply" it using the tool, the monitor order is set on-the-fly correctly... But the change won't persist after a reboot... The Option "nvidiaXineramaInfoOrder" "DFP-1" is ignored for some reason I don't know...

does it work as expected if you use the nouveau drivers included in fedora rather than the nvidia binaries?

Yes it does with a few graphic glitches when I hover the mouse over the "Application" menu on the top, reason why I was using Nvidia drivers on F18 release... I can live with those glitches but I rather not :)
