When I switch between surround and non-surround modes I always have to change the order of my screens or go into the desktop resolution and change which displays are active, and which is my primary... Its a huge PITA. I mostly just stay in surround now and turn off a monitor if I don't want to see it on.
Example: If I want my displays to be in surround in 1-2-3 order, then my far left display is the default. I like my center to be default and my right to be my 2nd screen, but if I plug my monitors do do that, then my surround order is 3-1-2. Either way I am stuck re arranging/activating/deactivating screens. Sometimes I wish I had a 4th, but then I'm glad I don't because of how nvidia doesn't 'remember' displays.
Once I activate my Surround, I go into Windows display options, activate my 4th and 5th monitors, save, restart, and they are still recognized and displaying what I set them to display. I mean, I know what you mean by nvidia not remembering the displays, We shouldn't have to go into Windows display settings after setting up Surround to activate the rest of our monitors, but oh well.
As for the center monitor in surround being default (I guess you mean default by what monitor shows BIOS, splash screens, and Logon screen) Why is it an issue having it 3-1-2? I can see where it might be a pain when not in surround.

Have you tried using the option in NV Control Panel, (Desktop Tab- Surround Displays- and then un-check maximize windows across all displays)?
To close this post out: NVIDIA definitely does need to come up with a Profile saver, I wonder if there is a third party program out there that can do all that we want it to. Time for Google.
