Mmm, I don't think that should be the proper way to handle that (unless
you know for sure that EDID information is completey broken with your
monitor and you are then forced to disabled it).

Xorg should not crash because of this. That situation (no available
displays) has to be properly managed by the graphical server. If it can't
and crashes, it's a bug you should report.

You even got a backtrace. That's good, because you can attach all this
information to a bug report (or search if there is a similar one already
opened and add your comments there).
In the meantime, you could also try with other drivers ("nv" or "nvidia").
