Virtual scrolling/panning

Fedora 11 Beta (xrandr 1.3 - yeah!)

If I manually execute the command...
xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1024x600 --panning 1280x1024

I sort of get what I want...well, the background is tiled but my tiny
1024x600 screen becomes usable with panning and I can't understand why I
can't achieve this simply with xorg.conf.

Can anyone see what changes I need to make?

xorg.conf looks like this...(some clippage)
