view-client ignores screen mirroring and --fullscreen and requests two monitors

I have a strange problem with the linux vmware-view client on linux.

If the client runs on a system with more than one monitor connected (e.g. monitor and beamer) it advertises this to the connected machine, even if the monitors are configured to be mirrorerd and if the client is called with "--fullscreen" => only one monitor should be used.

Tested witth version 4.3 and 4.4. Here is the output of one try, the two screens can easyly seen:

viewclient@thinclient:~$ vmware-view --fullscreen

Any ideas?

It's quite inconvinient for the users, that the application can disappear on a second screen that isn't accessibe for him...

greetings

Hey whats up man?  Did you get a resolution for this?  I just upgraded my system to 7.10 and experiencing the same issue you described below.  Also running Linux thin clients.
