nope, I didn't. I meant 800x600, because that's the most common 800 wide
resolution. X's 'screens' are always rectangular - so if you have one
head at 1600x1200 and another at 800x600 it'll just give you a square at
2400x1200, it won't give you an odd polygon with the exact right
heights. Actually, if you use such a setup, you'll notice you can scroll
the mouse off the bottom of the smaller display (in most WMs, I think
some 'fix' this). Anyway, not really important what the res of the
phantom display is.

me either, which is interesting, because...

...this app and xrandr really ought to agree. strange that they don't.
well, please definitely attach Xorg.0.log - and probably that dmesg
output, too - to the bug report, as I asked. adding the above
information about gnome-display-properties (perhaps even a screenshot)
would help too. thanks!
