Proposed fix, apply with git am

This patch makes the X server deal with missing outputs more gracefully instead of segfaulting (and making ABRT sad).

(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Thanks for that, I'll test the patch here today and post it upstream.  I'll batch this up in an update soon, there's another patch I'm waiting on testing from too.

with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
