I think what is happening is that xinerama isn't loading since you
don't have an screen orientaion set up, and your desktop environment
is loading on both X servers.

you need to set up a screen orientation in your the serverlayout
section of your xorg.conf, e.g.,
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	Screen	    1 "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
