BUG: Multimon taskbar doesn't work with monitor rotation

When rotating a monitor from landscape to portrait orientation, the multimon taskbar gets quite confused and attempts to place itself in the same place on the monitor, though the monitor's geometry has changed. E.g. going from horizontal (1680x1050) to vertical (1050x1680) the taskbar appears about 2/3 of the way down the monitor and wraps around several times. It's placement also blocks apps from maximizing to the full size of the screen.

Verified on two machines, latest drivers and WinXP on each:
Machine 1: DisplayLink USB display
Machine 2: ATI HD 2400 XT dual-head card

DisplayFusion 3.0.0 on each.

DisplayFusion 3.0.1 has just been released and should take care of this issue. You can download the new version here:

Almost works:

On the displaylink machine - works great! Thanks!

On the ATI machine - after the screen rotates, the multimon taskbar just goes away. If you right-click on the DisplayFusion icon to try to turn it on, it starts to draw the menu (alpha blended shadow), then hangs. You have to kill the process & restart to get it to come back to life.

DisplayFusion hanging like that is a separate issue that I am working on fixing for version 3.0.2. Does DisplayFusion hang like this every time you rotate your monitor, or just occasionally?

Every time I rotate the monitor. Haven't seen it hang in other scenarios.

I will be putting together a test build to fix this issue this weekend. Would you be interested in trying it out? I have found it difficult to reproduce this error consistently, and as a result it has been hard to diagnose and fix. If you are able to reproduce the error every time it could help out quite a bit. Thanks!

Sure, I can run a test build (though not until Sunday). Let me know how I can get it.
