Fwd: KVM Switch, EFID, Xorg.conf

I have an IOgear extreme KVM switch that isn't passing along my EFID
settings to xorg.  I know this isn't a problem with Xorg and isn't your
problem.  But I need a solution, so here's what I'm thinking... When I plug
my monitor in, all is right with the world, so how do I keep it that way.
In other words, how can I either turn of Xorg autodection of the monitor, or
just freeze the configuration altogether.  When I make changes to xorg.conf,
they are reset at boot.  I don't even know what the correct settings of
xorg.conf are anymore to put it there and make it read-only.

Here's a thread of a back and forth conversation with me and someone else
trying to fix the issue:

here's my xorg.0.log

If i can give any other information that is useful, please let me know.
Thanks for your help and support!
