Mult-Monitor Taskbar bugs

Hi. Thanks for the great software, I really like it.

I also like to use multi-monitor taskbars. However, I've seen some issues.

First, sometimes a taskbar is drawn too high on the 2nd monitor, where it shouldn't be. And it won't go away until I turn off multi-monitor support. This happens to me when restarting a virtual machine running win xp using virtual pc 2007 in fullscreen on my 2nd monitor. However, I have found a simpler way to duplicate the issue:
(FYI, I'm using XP x64 as the host machine, ie, XP x64 is the O.S. that I'm running display fusion on.)

i) enable multi monitor support. (i'm using the "All taskbars show relevant windows" setting)
1) Open display properties on the 2nd monitor, move the "screen resolution" slider left one notch to reduce the resolution on the 2nd monitor.
2) Hit apply.
3) Move the "screen resolution" slider back one notch to the right, to increase resolution on the 2nd monitor.
4) hit apply. Now there will be 2 taskbars on the 2nd monitor, but the programs will move down to the lower one, leaving a blank taskbar up high which isn't supposed to be there.

I can duplicate this everytime. Please let me know if you need more info, like version of .net framework,etc. (I think i'm using .net framework 3.5)

Another issue is if I'm using multi-monitor support and explorer.exe crashes (or is killed by me), displayfusion crashes completely, causing me to need to go into the start menu and run it again.

Thanks,
Eddie

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