First Windows Server 2003 Pet Peeve

I have a multi-monitor system at work. My primary monitor is a 19" LCD monitor with a maximum resolution of 1280x1024. The secondary monitor is a 15" LCD monitor with a maximum resolution of 1024x768. I keep both set to the maximum. I'm using a Radeon 7000 for my card.

So, here's the repro steps for the bug.

1) In any profile, set the resolution of both desktops to their maximum.
2) Shut down the computer.
3) Start the computer back up.

Primary desktop resolution is now at 1024x768 instead of 1280x1024.

Maintaining individual desktop resolutions is something that Windows 2000 Server and Windows XP could do. Why can't Windows Server 2003?
