Thanks for the hints. One of the weird things I found on friday is
that if I get x.org started with my work LCD over DVI, and then head
home and wake the laptop up with the home LCD... DVI just works.
A couple of X.org restarts later, the home LCD doesn't read the DVI
signal any more.
Now that I've seen that, I'll capture the logs and registers next time
I do it, and diff them.

Reduced blanking is on... and yes, I think I'm going down the path of modelines.
