I don't know if this is related to this bug, but I basically have the same problem, only with a different error message:

[root@fedora ben]# system-config-display 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 376, in <module>
    dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, rhpxl.videocard.VideoCardInfo())
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 665, in __init__
TypeError: GtkLabel.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None
[root@fedora ben]# rpmquery system-config-display
