(a) You hand-edited it to make it not work. Try hand-editing the file to
make it back the way is was.
(b) I believe the configuration tools watch for people who hand-edit
the X configuration file, and refuse to damage the careful hand-tuning
you've done. So there is something you have to do to tell it that
it's OK to replace the hand-tuned version with a machine-generated
one. I think it stores a checksum somewhere to detect the change.
Unfortunately I don't remember just what it is you have to do.
