i have a macbook pro which is often connected to a monitor, twin view on gnome works pretty well, but a problem arises when i disconnect the monitor, any window that resided on that workspace is no longer available.
another issue is when i start my computer when a monitor is not present, because xorg.conf file has the monitor configuration in it, my mouse pointer often disappears in the other monitor's virtual space, as if it is currently plugged,
osx deals with this issue elegantly by refreshing the display every time a plug in/out occurs,
is there anything similar that can be done in linux ?

my first monitor is a macbookpro 5.5 13 inch display, and the second is a 24 inch display working at 1980x1024 (1080p) resolution
