Yeah, we're seeing DVI outputs as "attached" even though they probably aren't.
I don't even have DVI port on my laptop. The Intel GMA 4500MHD does support DVI though.

Xorg.0.log with GM965/X3100
I have the same bug, but with Gentoo linux.
intel's latest driver from git (DRI2 + UXA + KMS)
intel x3100 GM965 intgrated graphics
Without KMS, everything's OK.
With KMS, maximizing acts funny and TV1 is reported connected:

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Looks like kernel 2.6.30 fixed it for me.
Reporter, could you please confirm the report in comment 11?

I haven't tried 2.6.30.
But I have a workaround. I tried disabled all DVI and VGA display leaving LVDS only. The bug seems gone. Maybe it is a bug of device detection.
I confirm this bug is still happening in kernel 22.214.171.124-64-fc11.
The only way to solve in by the moment is using xrandr --output DVI2 --off, which produced a kernel faliure (but the system does not hang).
The screen still seems to be connected but the windows resize correctly.

The issue went away since 2.6.30 or so.

I installed f12 from the nightlies lately and the issue is gone.
thank you very much and
2.6.30 went into F11, so I think we can close this, and re-open if Liberty's still having trouble...
