output "diff Xorg.0.log Xorg.0.log.old" (old-> MEP monitor)
Description of problem:
Same Thinkpad X200, same package versions, same ..., just different monitors.
With older Mistsubish LCD monitor, I get some very weird and stretched display of gdm greeter (I only see about 25% of the auth "box"). With newer HP monitor, all is as expected.
If I "follow the script" to login, gnome fixes the issue and I get a "normal" display.
I'll attach the diff of the 2 Xorg.0.log files. I do see this though:
< (II) intel(0): Using spanning desktop for initial modes
> (II) intel(0): Using sloppy heuristic for initial modes
< (II) intel(0): Output VGA1 using initial mode 1280x1024 +1280+0
> (II) intel(0): Output VGA1 using initial mode 1152x864 +0+0
< (**) intel(0): DPI set to (125, 162)
> (**) intel(0): DPI set to (125, 137)
< (II) intel(0): Setting screen physical size to 677 x 270
< (II) intel(0): Allocate new frame buffer 2560x1024 stride 2560
> (II) intel(0): Setting screen physical size to 338 x 228
I don't believe the MEP monitor supports 1152x864, BTW.

Photo of screen with "25% solution" partial display of gdm-greeeter
I attach photo of screen showing the partial display of gdm-greeter on Mitsubish monitor.
Works just fine on my HP display.
Also, screen "corrects" after login/gnome.
Can you attach the actual X log from the MEP monitor so I can see if it supports that mode or not?

Hey, appears that Xorg now brings up this monitor properly.
gdm-greeter now comes up nicely on screen.
This fixed (or am I just lucky!)?
