cinnamon expo overview broken on multi-monitor setup
Description of problem:
Cinnamon's Expo to show workspaces is broken when using multiple monitors. When I hit the hot-corner or hit CTRL-ALT-UP to show the workspaces, I only get a inch-wide strip on the far right showing the + button and a tiny bit of the right-most workspace. See the attached cinnamon-expo-workspaces-multi-monitor.png screenshot.
If I disable one monitor (leaving only one active monitor), then the Expo mode works fine and I can see all the workspaces. See the cinnamon-expo-workspaces-single-monitor.png screenshot.
Note: the screenshots include the terminal window, but this window is not normally visible in the Expo overview. I'm not sure why 'import' is grabbing this window too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run cinnamon (2d or 3d) on a system with two or more monitors
2. hit CTRL-ALT-UP or move the mouse to the hot corner
expo overview is only shown on a tiny vertical strip on the far right
expo overview uses full screen and shows all my workspaces

This may be a kernel related driver or gnome 3 issue.

updated screenshot for cinnamon 1.5.2
I can see a little more of the expo view with the recent update to cinnamon-1.5.2-2.fc17 (and muffin-1.0.5-1), but it's still only a partial view.
Does the 1.6.0 update fix this issue?
Hooray, it works correctly with 1.6.0. Thanks!
My system now has the following versions installed:
