I just realized I should probably respond to this bit. You see that
after "xrandr" everything looks ok, but the "xrandr" command causes
a round trip to the kernel and even causes the kernel to re-poll all
connectors. Have you tried "xrandr --current" ? That will return the
current state stored inside the xserver without re-querying the kernel.

Not sure of this helps, but I thought I should mention it.
