Description of problem: Dual Monitor in over/under configuration crashes
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17 64 bit KDE version, fresh install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System Settings -> Display and Monitor -> Size & Orientation
2. For DVI-I-2 change from default "Right Of" to "Below"
Crash: no mouse or keyboard response, screen usually goes black. Reset or poweroff required to recover.
Expected results: Displays change to over/under configuration.
nouveau driver, twin 1920x1080 displays.
32 bit Fedora 17 is good, 64 bit Fedora 17 crashes.
"Above" and "Absolute" also crash; "Left", "Right", and "Clone" do not crash.
In addition to crashing in KDE, Gnome and xfce also crash.
When using openbox, there is no crash, but the configuration does not change and an error message appears:
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBusError.UnknownMethod:No such interface
'org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.XRANDR_2' on object at path /org/gnome/SettingsDaemon/XRANDR
yum update Oct.21, 2012: no change in behavior.
Nov.4, 2012 Over/under configuration is working now.
