Well you can reduce the resolution using in Gnome for instance
Preference --> Display or via terminal xrandr -s 1024x768
without the need to actually create an xorg.conf. But you should file a
report against s-c-d and attache the created xorg.conf along with xorg
log file encase it's generating it incorrectly..
