In my brief fling with FC6, I had problems with that file not getting
updated. Someone here posted about this problem and someone else here
suggested using system-config-display  --reconfig
as I recall, to generate a new file.

Not a good idea to log in as root! Best to use su - from a terminal
window and exit from root ASAP.
