JSI Tip 9687. Icons for some inactive monitors do not appear on the Settings tab in the 'Display Properties' dialog in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003?

When you attach multiple monitors to Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003, and set the desktop background for a mirrored display, viewing the Settings tab of the Display Properties shows that some inactive monitors do not have an icon in the Drag the monitor icons to match the physical arrangement of your monitors section.

To workaround this behavior, set the desktop background for the mirrored display to (None).
