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.
