Dual Monitors - set to different resolution: not supported?

I've been having some peculiar graphics going on mainly when in the Hole Wizard, with the "positions" tab active (when previewing the point locations).  I get some rectangular boxes around any sketch entities.  I've got it on Rx several times, and have been working with my VAR, and they have passed this on to SolidWorks direct.  I think the hardware is on its last leg, and on its way out, but none the less, I've been working through the VAR, letting them know my thoughts and seeing my display.  Today I get this in an email from my VAR, who is just passing along the information she got from SW:

 

The customer has two monitors in use with different resolutions; this is not supported (S-039747), so let's see if that is causing this behavior.

 

1. Please have the customer, with the 2010 driver in use, disable the secondary monitor and then see if this is reproducible with only one monitor.

 

I have a ViewSonic capable of 1680 x 1050, and an HP capable of 1280 x 1024, and have run both at max resolution for about the past 2 years.  Are others out there running dual monitors that have different resolution?  "Not supported"????  You've got to be kidding me?
