Do you have two X servers running, or two displays with a single X server?

Two displays would be localhost:0.0 and localhost:0.1
This would have a single keyboard and mouse.
Mouse will scroll between the displays.

Two X servers would be locahost:0.0 and localhost:1.0
This would have two keyboards and two mice.  (ala. virtual consoles)
The mouse will not be able to scroll between displays.
