Background: This machine has two video cards, the first supports two screens the second one screen.

Left screen is 1200x1920 (rotated clockwise)
Middle & Right are 2560x1600

Can rotate the left screen 90 clockwise, can put the middle screen in the vertical centre of the left, I.E. +1200+160. Can identify the right screen.

However, when the right screen is activated, the virtual screen size shrinks from the desired 6320x1920 to 6320x1760.

If the middle screen is placed at the bottom of the left screen the virtual screen is set to the correct size, I.E. +1200+320.
If the middle screen is then moved to the middle of the virtual screen, the virtual screen shrinks again.
If the virtual size is set back to the correct size of 6320x1920, the follow error is generated.
