This is only a suggestion!
On my system, I\\\'ve a dual monitor setup through a nvidia card, with two monitors. Nvidia provides TwinView, which gives one big screen. It\\\'s different from Xinerama, which offers two screens, like :0.0 and :0.1. Now with TwinView it\\\'s one big screen (:0.0) divided by the nvcard over the two monitors. X (and KDE) \\\"think\\\" it\\\'s just one screen, with dimensions 2560x1024. The problem now here is that the logingreeter appears in the center of the screen (x=50%). I can solve this by manually edit the xml file of the theme, by changing the relevant x positions, and change it from 50% to 75%.
This is sometimes a not so easy job. Some xml theme files are complicated, where the x has to be changed on several places. This is then a trial and error thing, which is not necessary.
The lates xml file I\\\'m using (KDE 4.4beta, oxygen-air) is relativly easy, I had to change the x position only on 3 places.
Now my idea is to automate this. KDM offers the possibility to make a script run before the greeter appears.
This is very possible, but the big issue is here, how does this \\\"adjusttheme script\\\" know what x positions to change and which not. Second, the script has to decide when to change the x positions, and when not.

I\\\'ve done already a script, which uses xwininfo to determine the size of the screen. Bigger than a certain value means TwinView.

 TwinView and Xinerama

I had the same problem. TwinView merges the two screens into a single one but somehow Xinerama can still work with the individual displays. Try activating Xinerama in your xorg.conf and compile qt with Xinerama support. I did not change any themes but have the greeter displayed centered on the left monitor. Works with KDE 4.3.1 and 4.3.3 for me.

you really should check if there is not already an open bug report in bugs.kde.org/. If not, maybe you can open a new bug here. You could try to post in KDE Brainstorm too (http://forum.kde.org/brainstorm.php)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
