Thanks Keith,

There's a recent Xorg.log of mine attached to bug #9076 already, but
that will be from when I wasn't attached to the docking station.


I'll make sure to reboot tomorrow, with the laptop attached to the
docking station.  I'll start a new bug for this issue at that point,
attach both logs to it, and reply here with a link to it.
