I'm not clear if you are saying these bugs occur if you have Xwin running when
you dock/undock (i.e. this is a bug in how XWin handles a change in the number
of monitors)? Does restarting XWin after dock/undock still show these problems?

Can you please provide your /var/log/xwin/XWin.0.log

Can you provide a bit more detail about your monitor geometry (i.e. size of
the monitors, is the 'primary' monitor to the left or right of the 'secondary'
