When I start X, it defaults to cloning mode at 1600x1200 since that's 
the native resolution of my attached monitor. Then if I try to issue 
"xrandr --output VGA --left-of LVDS --auto", it tells me:

xrandr: screen cannot be larger than 1600x1600 (desired size 3000x1200)

If I were to start X without the monitor connected, it would start at 
1400x1050, and if I try to extend to my second monitor it says the 
screen cannot be larger than 1400x1400.

Where am I going wrong?
