OK, that is the setup I outlined, yes. I have a hard time imagining what's wrong with x2vnc. When you move the mouse cursor "out of" the main screen, it should appear on the VNC-exported X server, and keyboard input should be forwarded to that server. More than one client on a VNC server is possible, though some need special configuration (flag "-alwaysshared") in order to work that way. x2vnc does _NOT_ forward anything but the input devices, though. So I'm not sure what you mean at that point. This is why I outlined a method that would start a new, separate X server running a new, separate window manager (openbox in the example). You can not just "move applications" from one X server to the other.
