son of gun...I love you man

I had downloaded the F11-Beta-DVD, loop mounted the iso and did an rpm
-qp --changelog on xorg-x11-server-utils and it only listed 1.2.3 for
xrandr

I was frustrated in my attempts to install the F11-Beta and I figured
why go through the pain if it can't cure my problem. I will get it
installed at some point today.

My Aspire One tiny screen might get virtual scrolling after
all...yippee!
