That was the *first* Fit and Finish test day, display configuration :)


it's a bug in your X driver, whichever that is, most likely. The console
output of 'xrandr' may be useful (it'll probably show that it still
thinks the projector is attached - if it doesn't, the bug may be in
GNOME), and /var/log/Xorg.0.log - the usual drill.
