Awesome, that did the trick thanks!

Oddly that breaks everything for me. I end up with a screen shifted to
the left with a black bar down the right hand side. Furthermore, it
looks like the hsync is not working properly because chunks of the
screen shudder left/right. How that happens on a digital display is
Luckily I don't need it, so that's ok.

I've disable DRI. As far as I know this only works on Linux with the
binary ATI driver. If this isn't the case I'd like to know because it
would be very handy, but I'm not desperate enough to run binary drivers.
I also had to add
Option "MergedFB" "no"
or it tried to do a dual head with a monitor I haven't got, which didn't
seem to help matters.
