    randr: fix user mode create initial reference count

    Don't need extra reference count adding when creating user mode.
    This fixes user mode destroy, otherwise we get BadAccess error.

Reverting this commit restore the console properly. Without reverting,
the screen is messed up with colorful patterns, but keyboard is still

I'm using the latest git version running on ThinkPad X60s.
