18:18:05 # Life Having to work around gnome2 configuration on display. Apparently GNOME doesn't yet grok xrandr 1.2 very well. Letting GNOME handle my display results in a blank screen (it tries to output to the other monitor), thus I am forced to work around it. I can get up to GDM, but logging in leads to a blank screen. To make GNOME forget about display settings, I can hack it with gconftool. I have the following configuration in my .xsession to work around gnome.

	  gconftool --recursive-unset /desktop/gnome/screen # to remove GNOME config
	  xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1280x1024 --output VGA-0 --off  # to configure through xrandr properly.

Where do I file this as a bug report? I have no idea. xrandr probably needs a stable way to save-restore the state. A restore should check that the system is exactly the same as the system where the data it was generated on, or do something very intelligent about it.
