plasma activities and dual screen issue

Working with Debian squeeze and KDE 4.4.

Sometimes I would like to connect an external monitor to my laptop's HDMI connnector, so as to enjoy the benefits of dual screen (I have a huge HD monitor at work ;). Using KRandTray I can easily manage the display configuration: I put the monitor to the side of the laptop's monitor. Except that the plasma activity cannot be controlled: my main activity (the one that is usually on my laptop's monitor) is relocated to the external monitor (and my widgets get messed up), and a new empty activity appears on my laptop's monitor.

Is there a way to control plasma's behavior with a dual screen setup? Shall I fill a bug report with KRandTray or plasma or what?
