Multi-monitor full screen with USB DisplayLink monitors?

Based on the response to a question on StackOverflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9602985/vnc-viewer-with-multiple-monitors) I am investigating switching to RealVNC from TightVNC as my viewer. I have verified that the current RealVNC viewer can connect to my workstation (the latest version of TightVNC does not!?!?!). However, my multi-monitor setup is using two USB DisplayLink connectors to attach a pair of 22" monitors to my laptop. I have a similarly matching pair of monitors on my workstation and would like to see the whole desktop at one time.
I can stretch the viewer window across the two monitors but because of the MS Windows title bar on the window, I lose that much height which is equivalent to the toolbars on the top and bottom of the workstation desktop. In full screen mode, I can get the full height, but obviously only one monitor's width.
I would like to know if anyone has attempted the multi-monitor full screen mode with USB DisplayLink connections in the RealVNC Personal Edition. Does it work? Is there any additional configuration required?
