Where I work we have workstations that have the setup you desire,
running gnome. They have nvidia dual head cards, and they get
configured using the nvidia-settings program. The trick here is to
disable xinerama, and the two monitors then appear as two separate X
screens, :0.0 and :0.1. They get their own panels and are
independently switchable between desktops.
