New issue 242 by ddbremner: inter screen handling doesn't work with xrandr  
--right-of, works with --left-of

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. log into to my thinkpad X61 with external monitor attached
2. xrandr --output VGA --right-of LVDS --mode 1280x1024
3. mod-shift-e in a client on the external screen

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
the client should go to the laptop screen
instead, it disappears (although it still shows in the kicker list)

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.8 on debian. I tried with the unstable and experimental versions
of the Xserver

Please provide any additional information below.

If I instead run xrandr --output VGA --left-of LVDS, things work as
expected.  If I run --right-of _after_ --left-of, it seems to work as
