           Summary: X Server crashing at startup when forcing MonitorLayout
           Product: xorg

          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Driver/Radeon

My monitor is actually mis-detected by the radeon driver (see bug #1514).
Following Mike Harris good advice, I tried to force the driver to use the CRT
monitor layout mode, so I added this line to the X configuration file : 
Option "Monitorlayout" "CRT,NONE"
In the radeon driver section. 

The X server crashed with segmentation fault at startup. 
See attached configuration and log files.

I'm using X11 6.8.1-4 packages from fedora project development tree. Hardware
configuration is :
- "Built By ATI" Radeon 7200 (QD)
- 22" CRT Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 230SB Monitor
