You should add a modeline covering the full virtual screen size, in your
1050x1680 + 1680x1050
Which would be: 2730x1680
Is that right BTW? Looks like the two monitors have the same size (in
pixels) but one is vertical and the other one is horizontal.

Sticking this into the xtiming calculator, I get:
Modeline "2728x1680 at 25" 148.02 2728 2760 3320 3352 1680 1719 1726 1765
Which I have now added to the default config file:

Just to be clear, this should not be necessary when you use

I don't think that's needed, though that's a Debian packaging thing, so
I can't be sure.

Thanks for all the details.
What is the application that is causing you trouble? Can I try it?
It sounds like it doesn't use the information from Xinerama and uses the
full screen size instead...
