I just had the misfortune of having to restart the X server, which gave me 
the opportunity to add "AutoAddGPU" "FALSE", but it's still failing in the 
exact same way as previously. It's supposed to go in ServerFlags, right?

I see. Shouldn't it show in the log file then or somesuch then, though? I 
can't find it in the log file, at least, and xrandr doesn't show any extra
