Brief look doesn't show me any locks there, I'll dig in.

If relevant, we have the same symptoms with and without a "desktop
environment". Meaning same thing happens with pure X, and also with our
software running which does explicit output probing when nothing is connected.

Problem is (seems to me) xrandr reports monitor connected when in that state.

Also if relevant we do get two RandR events (RRScreenChangeNotify and
RRNotify_OutputChange) when re-plugging the monitor.

Unless there is no intersection between RandR and DPMS... ?
