Ah, fixed this one by putting

  Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS,CRT"

into the Device section for the radeon.

And fixed this one by commenting out the

  Option "UseFBDev" "true"

in the same section, and commenting out

  Modes "1280x854" ...

in the Screen section.

Now to work out why the external monitor is only running at 800x600 when I
know it can run at 1024x768.
