I have some strange behaviour with global shortcuts for example:
When pressing alt+tab window switching is not always activated. 
Ctrl + f12 will not always bring widgets to foreground
Alt + f2 will not always show krunner

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Enable Dualhead

Actual Results:  
Non consistent response got global shortcuts

Expected Results:  
Consistent response got global shortcuts

i'll tag this a dupe while it's actually not about kwin at all.
currently the only solution would be to use xrandr multiscreen support (resp. nvidida tvinview) - see comments in the dupe

as far as I know Xrandr and nvidia tvinview only work for one card. So if you, like me, hvave 2+ cards to power yours screen multiply x are the only sultion for now.
