The thing is, I can pop in a different kernel boot disk and it changes
the horizontal shift of the screen, without me touching any X
settings. xvidtune (and a change to XF86Config) *has* allowed me to
shift the offending screen of the offending kernels, but I am still
perplexed as to how this can happen.  Perhaps it is a bug I should
