I also had MDV overwriting xorg.conf when harddrake probed for a new monitor
config on a laptop that was variously connected/disocnnected to an external
monitor. The service is pointless for a laptop where you rarely swap out
hardware. Probing for USB devices/drives is not handled by this service, but
rather by udev so you don't want to touch udev.
