Does --rotate right make a difference? See the readme. Just to be troublesome (or rather, to keep the code simple and save time ) xoat was designed to assume a rotation to the right.
That's just a first guess. Am away from my multi-monitor setup atm so can't experiment just yet...

Nope, no difference. Judging from a fullscreen window, xoat's Tile #1 expands itself off the right edge of the screen. #2 and #3 are not visible; I assume they, too, are located "behind" the right screen edge.
I recall I've actually experienced minor odd behaviour by xrandr+dwm earlier as well, so this might also be a problem of my (docked) Thinkpad (it doesn't recognize the external screen as it should). I'll look into it. Thanks for your reply!
EDIT: A "xoat restart" after the xrandr command redraws the screen as it should, so I have a workaround. But as I understad, the redrawing should happen automatically?

Since I've been using xoat full time for a couple years now I figure it counts as my favorite wm and deserves some TLC :-) Therefore the github repo has a few patches:
Optional $HOME/.xoatrc support for those who hate config.h
Unobtrusive pointer warping in situations where window focus was flaky, mainly with keyboard controls and EWMH
Some bug fixes for: window cycling; a fullscreen flash game crash; "odd" spot placement when toggling max-h/max-v
Bit of a source code cleanup. Ok, you don't care, but I do, and it still counts as an improvement :-)
I'm ashamed to say my Arch box died a couple months ago and I've yet to rebuild it. So, reports of any build errors on Arch appreciated.
cool, running the update now with .xoatrc. Can't help with the compiling question on arch, because im on fedora21 right now, but it compiled fine on fedora. I change distros about as often as my underwear so will probably be on arch soon again. :} Thanks for continuing to improve xoat.
