Description of problem:
Crash during startup.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start system-config-display from shell

ValueError: invalid literal for int(): 864_85
The same error appears with -noui switch.
I believe that the reason for this problem is that system-config-display parses
the xorg.conf file and has a bug when it comes to parsing modeline entries.
For example I had this modeline:
Modeline "1400x1050A" 122.61 1400 1488 1640 1880 1050 1051 1054 1087 -HSync
in my Monitor section,
and in my Screen section's Display sub-section I had:
The problem is that system-config-display _assumes_ that a mode name is of the
My solution was to rename my mode to "1400x1050" and change it in both places.
After that system-config-display worked correctly.
The only such a thing I can see are specified frequencies for some modes like
"1024x768_85" etc. It should really be related.
This should be fixed in rhpxl 0.44.
