Description of problem:
When I add the line:
Option "Rotate" "CW"
to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to rotate the screen, the display comes up garbled. The system has not frozen as I am able to kill the X server and switch VTs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Option "Rotate" "CW" to the device section in xorg.conf
2. Restart X Server
The display comes up garbled.
The display should have been rotated 90 degrees clockwise.
