I know very little about this but I was keeping an eye on it for my eeePC 701.

The changelog for Xorg 1.5.99 says:

Matthias Hopf (5):
      randr: Add monitor option "Panning" for initial panning configuration

So that says to me that somewhere in your Xorg.conf Monitor section
you should have a Panning keyword - which you don't have.

Looks like you'll have to dig around in Google though as I haven't
seen any easy source of information about it,
