Bug Description

A short while after this clean installation of Ubuntu 24.04 LTS, a strange unknown display appeared both in GNOME Settings and in NVIDIA X Server Settings. I noticed it because I could see my mouse cursor disappear beyond the boundaries of my monitor as if it is being extended with a second one. In GNOME Settings it is listed as an"Unknown Display", but in NVIDIA X Server Settings, it appears as a PRIME display which is confusing since I am using a desktop configuration.

Currently, setting the second mirror to be mirrored seems to "fix" the issue, but it is a recurring problem.

The issue concerns an nVidia RTX 2080ti.
