I have no lag on my second screen on a variety of systems (all using  
proprietary nVidia drivers + TwinView).

There's a lot of possible places to point fingers here:

1. bad display driver/xorg interaction
2. your shell / your local shell config / your system's global shell config
3. extensions to urxvt
4. extensions to xmonad that you're using
5. xmonad itself
6. probably others

For debugging, you could consider trying the same rxvt test in other  
window managers, trying the same thing with the default xmonad config  
(e.g. main = xmonad defaultConfig), testing what happens when you  
disable one or both of the extra monitors, or checking what happens  
under the default shell configuration.

Do let us know if any of these turn up anything interesting. It's a  
very strange problem.
