Description Ran Cabell 2000-01-10 12:18:05 EST
Several strings in Xconfigurator/MonitorsDB for IBM monitors include double
quotes to indicate screen size in inches:

IBM 2215 15"; 0; 30-64; 50-90
IBM 2248 14"; 0; 30-48; 50-90
IBM 2264-002 14"; 0; 30-64; 50-90
IBM 2264-017 17"; 0; 29-82; 50-150
IBM 6312 14" PS/VP; 0; 31-48; 47-100
IBM 6314 14" PS/VP; 0; 30-60; 50-120
IBM 6318 14" PS/VP; 0; 32-37; 56-87
IBM 6319 15" PS/VP; 0; 30-60; 50-120

Since double quotes are used in XF86Config to delineate strings, this
results in unmatched quotes inside XF86Config, which causes X to die on
startup.
