I was annoyed by this for ages too and didn't find a nice way to solve
it but in the latest release of Ubuntu it's fixed.
In 11.04 it seems to remember the monitor placement for the different
monitors you plug in. So when I'm connected to my home monitor it
correctly positions it based on the last configuration I used, for
that particular monitor.
It also seems to scan for newly connected monitors. I rarely need to
open Display Settings any more as it detects there's a new monitor and
enables it based on my last configuration before I get a chance to.
Sorry this doesn't answer your question directly but hopefully someone
knows what was changed in 11.04 and can give you more information.
