Best Regards,

'Option          "Monitor-DVI-1" "Compaq-15xxS"' assigns my monitor to the
device. Nevertheless the problems goes on. The "Screen" section which define the
default video mode, seems to be bypassed, and the 'xrandr enabled driver' takes
the largest video mode as default. Everything looks like a blind plug and play
behavior. Xrand is not well documented, and seems to prevent the usage of
customized mode, or buggy monitors. In my opinion an option to disable it, is
probably the right thing to do. Otherwise, do you know a method to get the
classical, and fully configurable,  xorg behavior with an xrandr enabled driver

Best Regards,
