[ Follow up for bug 413463 ]

I have reproduced the crash with version 6.6.191-1, but I also figured
out what setting caused the crash:

Option "MergedFB" "false"

The above option seems to be the culprit, as removing it from xorg.conf
lets me start X as usual. 

The reason I added this option in the first place is because otherwise I
have no working Xv for video. (Only a black area where the video should

I'm using a card with both VGA and DVI using a TFT monitor connected to
the VGA port. It seems like X fails to detect that I'm only using one
monitor, and thus gives me no Xv for the VGA port. I tried to fix this
by specifically setting "MonitorLayout" "NONE, TDMS" but it also seems
like my TFT monitor is detected as a CRT, as I needed to specify "NONE,
CRT", otherwise I only get a black screen.

Should I file a separate bug about this?
