The most consistent thing I do to screw it up is switch systems on my
DVI KVM switch.  When I switch back to the system in question, it
doesn't seem to notice the condition.  The connectors eventually show up
with random combinations of switching to the console (ctrl-alt-f1) and
back, running xrandr, or running gnome-control-panel and opening the
Displays applet.

I haven't been able to discern any pattern to it.  Sometimes just
running xrandr fixes it.  Sometimes just opening the control panel.
Others, I have to do it several times.

I don't think it shows up if I just leave it for a while.

I'll see if I can gather that.
