[PD] [Gem] Multi-Screen on Windows

this question is probably off-topic:

When using a Gem-Patch on a laptop with a NVidia GeForce Go 7300 video
card, running Windows XP and Pd-extended 0.39-rc4.

Whenever trying to bring the Gem windows to the second screen, rendering
stops, most likely due to 3D rendering only enabled on the first screen,
the laptop display. Cloning the screen works without any problems.

Does anyone know of a method to enable rendering on the second screen,
perhaps with disabling rendering on the laptop display?

Another question: Whenever I create the Gem window with
[fullscreen 1, border 0(
I of course cannot use the borders of the window to put it on the second
screen. Is there any argument for [gemwin] to which display the window
should be sent?

Thanks in advance,
