What exactly does it not do that you expect it to?

Terminology note: 'screen' refers to X screens, 'head' refers to
Xinerama heads.  It sounds like you have two heads within one screen,
so I'd expect *screen-list* to only show one entry.  However, when you
have both heads enabled, (screen-heads (current-screen)) should have
two entries.  The command:

xdpyinfo -ext XINERAMA | grep head

should show dimensions that match these entries.

Are you running the latest from git?  This sounds rather like a bug
that was fixed relatively recently and isn't in the latest release.  I
get a 404 from that backtrace link btw.

xrandr changes are handled in the :configure-notify event handler in 

Hope some of this is helpful :)
