    Duplicates on gnome panel

    Alright, I'm doing an all-out assualt on trying to get this issue fixed.
    Posting on every forum possible and reading like crazy.

    The issue is pretty simple. I have duplicate desktops and/or entries on my gnome panel(top, black bar).

    As you can see the duplicates increase and the screen space diminishes after each subsequent restart, until my primary desktop is left a black screen.

    I did a fresh install of Debian Wheezy. Put in new drivers via the description provided here:

    https://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary

    I ran the follwoing to generate a xorg for multiple video cards:

    aticonfig --adapter=all --initial


    Here's a current Xorg.conf:

    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
        Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
        Screen         "aticonfig-Screen[1]-0" RightOf "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"

        Option        "DPMS" "true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[1]-0"

        Option        "DPMS" "true"
    EndSection

    EndSection

    EndSection

        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
