I had a significant issue with my Nvidia Twin-view setting, for my laptop, that was bugging me for a long time: -
When ever I resumed from hibernation, at home, all my open windows and Gnome Panels would have been shifted to the external monitor. On checking the defaul monitor was switched to the external monitor
I have identified 2 issues with the nvidia-settings applet:-
1. It adds the wrong location info to the additional device settings
2. It adds duplicate modes, it un-necessarily extends the modes list by appending duplicate modes to the modes list until the maximum length is reached

The location of the main window, DFP is +0+0;
The require location of the CRT is +1920+0; and not +0+0;
- which I believe is the source of my problem.

My fix is to manually edit the modes, removing the offending location definitions.

Extract from offending xorg.conf:-
Option "metamodes" "DFP: nvidia-auto-select +0+0, CRT: nvidia-auto-select +1920+0;
CRT: 1680x1050_60 +0+0;
