Description of problem:
when you change the configuration system-config-display tells you that it saved a copy in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup but it actually does not.
The problem seems to be in /usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py, line 408. os.copy does not exist and throws an exception. Works when replaced with os.rename.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run system-config-display and change configuration
2.hit "OK and see notification that backup is saved in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
old copy of /etc/X11/xorg.conf was not saved as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
old copy of /etc/X11/xorg.conf should have been saved as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
