Tried that (including the backups).  When it came up, it didn't have any
of the right settings, and when I tried to set them properly, it didn't
give me the right options, so I killed it.

I have a dual head display (2 17" flat panels) configured as 1024x768
side by side, or at least that's what I think it is - could be 1280x1024
x 2.  The existing xorg.conf files look ok, but neither
system-config-display nor gconfd-2 works - s-c-d just dies with no
traces or messages, and gconfd-2 just dies.
