Description of problem:
Tested as suggested in the post on the fedora-devel-list and the "vesa" driver gets used instead of the "ati" but as a result of the test the keyboard mapping also gets changed to "us".
hand edited the config file to use the "ati" driver and it all works OK.
the two attacments you requested will be added later.

Your video card PCI ID, from the X server log is:
(II) PCI: 01:00:0: chip 1002,4e48 card 1002,0002 rev 00 class 03,00,00 hdr 80
This is present in the radeon.xinf videoalias file in xorg-x11-drv-ati-126.96.36.199-2
alias pcivideo:v00001002d00004E48sv*sd*bc*sc*i* radeon
Please ensure that your entire system is upgraded to the latest rawhide
packages of everything, and re-run system-config-display --reconfig
again. It should generate a config that uses the "radeon" driver.
If it does not, then there might be a bug in kudzu perhaps.
I actually included the wrong xorg.conf file (the one i re-edited back to ati so
as you suggest I will have another go this time doing nothing before I post the
files you ask ed for.

Note that the card shows up as ATI Technologies Inc Radeon [Radeon 9800 Pro]
(Secondary) in display settings and the following is not in the radeon.xinf file.
II) PCI: 01:00:1: chip 1002,4e68 card 1002,0003 rev 00 class 03,80,00 hdr 00

Wich is about the only video card in the system getting detected as
the second head.
I have just seen that there is a new ati driver available in todays updates so
when I get home after work I will update the system before doing another test.
I will then update this bug with the result and if necessary add the attacments.
Please attach the output of 'kudzu -p -c video'

OK, so the probing data is right, but system-config-display is picking the
second head. Closing as a dup.

The "secondary" PCI IDs, indicated by class 0380, are not used. They are
for Microsoft Windows usage, and are unneeded by X. Yes, this is confusing.
