Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Are you able to create screenshot of the distorted screen (just by pressing PrtScr)? Could you attach that as well, please?

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

I have attached the requested information. Also, not sure if it matters, but my monitor supports a higher resolution than the laptop screen. After undocking, I have to press Fn+7 to turn the laptop screen on which results in the image shown in the screenshot file.

Since it is too late to address this issue in RHEL 5.5, it has been proposed for RHEL 5.6.  Contact your support representative if you need to escalate this issue.
Comment 11 Ludek Smid 2010-11-26 04:02:09 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 and Red Hat does not plan to fix this issue the currently developed update.

No further hardware enablement updates are planned for RHEL5's X stack.  If this problem still occurs in RHEL6, please update the affected product version and reopen this bug.
