The problem indeed was with my xorg.conf file.  I am posting the "cure" to my
"nvidia icewm twinview dual-screen wine woes", in case anyone else has the same
problem.  I needed to add the following line under Section "Device" 

Option "NoTwinViewXineramaInfo" "True"

According to
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/169.12/README/appendix-b.html,
"Some window mangers get confused by this information, so this option is
provided to disable this behavior."  It seems icewm is one of "those" wms.  I
don't know what other consequences there may be to using this option with
twinview.
