Using filters on wideangle lenses without vignetting?

I am wanting to use 2 filters on my 20mm Nikkor f2.8D wideangle lens but am experiencing vignetting. I have noticed that there are photographers who are successfully using 2 filters on their 20mm wideangle lenses, like Art Wolfe (check out his new book 'The Living Wild'). I want to use the Cokin P series polarizer with a graduated split neutral density filter. I have trimmed the holder so that it will not vignette and it now holds only 2 filters and not 4, but when I insert the polarizer I get vignetting. Am I doing anything wrong, should I be using another make of filter, or is there a simple solution?
