Bug Description

Dual monitors with both monitors connected via DVI to a dual head nVidia GTS250 card. However, xrandr thinks that the secondary monitor is an HDMI connection:

nick@PreciseBeta2:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3640 x 1920, maximum 8192 x 8192
DVI-I-1 connected 2560x1600+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 641mm x 401mm
   2560x1600 60.0*+

   1920x1080 60.0*+
   1280x1024 75.0 60.0
   1152x864 75.0
   1024x768 75.1 60.0
   800x600 75.0 60.3
   640x480 75.0 60.0
   720x400 70.1

I get a desktop across both monitors ok with the Nouveau driver, which I am using, but if I switch to the proprietary nVidia driver, I cannot get a display on the secondary monitor.

I also have 10.04 installed on the same machine, and booting into it and running xrandr shows the expected DVI connection for both monitors.
