Maximized wallpaper on dual screen setup

for quite some time now, I have an annoying problem; It seems Awesome is not able to maximize the wallpaper
over the 2nd. screen, if the monitor is connected on startup.
After I run 'awesome.restart', the wallpaper is set correctly.
Before restart the wallpaper overlaps the 2nd. screen a bit from the 1st. one. The leftover (more than the
half) is simply black.
On window manager startup 'xrandr' configures the screen layout, and Awesome run its function to set the wallpaper:
if beautiful.wallpaper then
for s = 1, screen.count() do
gears.wallpaper.maximized(beautiful.wallpaper, s, true)
I'm using the following Awesome version:
awesome v3.5.5 (Kansas City Shuffle)
• Build: Apr 11 2014 14:11:19 for x86_64 by gcc version 4.8.2
• Compiled against Lua 5.2.3 (running with Lua 5.2)
• D-Bus support: ✔
First I thought Awesome isn't able to notice that a 2nd. screen is connected, so I verified that
"screen.count()" is set to 2.
Maybe someone has an idea how to fix it.
Many thanks, in advance.
