Just set yourself up two WindowBox settings... and that should be 
sufficient.  I'm using TwinView and have a resolution of 3200x1200 ... 
and I rarely get windows over the border of the two DFP's

This would be nicer for you than any setup we could default, because you 
can control the placement behavior for each.  For example, I have aterms 
and other smaller windows on my left panel, with larger windows on the 
right... additionally, I choose Tile then Random for aterms, and Tile 
then Cascade for browsers and the like.
