The config file spit out by system-config-display is invalid.  It does not
contain BusId or Screen in all sections as required.  This is a bug in
system-config-display that has been there essentially forever and has
never been fixed for some reason...

Reassigning to s-c-d

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
