[CentOS] (?) Dual-monitor wallpapers on CEntOS 6

I've recently set up two workstations running CentOS 6, one with an 
nVidia card and the elrepo drivers and one with an ATI Radeon card with 
the elrepo fglrx drivers.  Both work well, but one aspect of the systems 
works different from CEntOS 5 on those systems:  I cannot get a 
wallpaper image to span the two monitors.  I have tried both with and 
without xinerama and there is no difference in this regard.  The 
specified wallpaper is displayed on both monitors.

Has anybody else run across this or a solution?  I freely admit, this is 
a trivial issue.  It's strictly an aesthetic matter and I'm curious as 
to why it doesn't work the same.  Just wonderin'
