Which is basically still what I've got even with the commands you gave.

I search for randr with gconf-editor but found only two entries which I think
are unrelated.  I think this setting is creating problems at my end.  Would you
mind helping me to find that key?

I am still completely stuck with the newer Xorg on Thinkpad X24.  Latest output
from "xrandr -q" is now again back to

$ xrandr -q
