Also, I was working right after some lightning damage to the computer,
replacing it with another computer, not knowing if the ability to read
data from the monitor had been damaged in the process.  All I knew was
that system-config-display said the monitor was unknown, and that under
Windows it worked OK.  I wasn't aware of those Linux programs that have
been mentioned for dumping mode lines.
