Yes. Just after sending the report strange things started to happen. So
right now it doesn't work reliable for me.
It might be related to a kernel upgrade. Does anyone know where old
fedora updates can be found?
I'm quite sure that for some time it worked even without any hal info at
BTW: What is the quirk.no_fb - I couldn't find any documentation of it?
Is it related to the kernel boot option nofb?
I feel quite lost and really don't know if it is a hal issue, a kernel
issue, or a X driver issue...

There is no such setting :-(
Also: Occasionally I have seen that there was nothing but vertical
stripes of digital noise on the external display after resume. Turning
the screen (!) off and on again seems to restore the picture. As if the
machine doesn't fully detect the external screen when resuming and thus
doesn't turn the output fully on...

I couldn't find out how to make such a speciel case - but right now it really doesn't matter...
