I'm used to work with 2 monitors, but after switching to Unity I can not access the main menus of applications. The main menu panel is only displayed on one of the screens

Is there a way of dealing with this?! (see the screenshot). No Main Menu on Unity with 2 screens

Updating Ubuntu 11.10 with the latest packages solved the problem for me. Tested on 2 TVs, and 4 Monitors in groups of 2. It even works with different resolutions.
