Horizontal timing out of range (was Re: Bug in Xgalaga?)
[added the list back to the cc's of this because it's now a general
question about Xfree86, rather than a specific question about your
message. I hope you (Juliusz) don't mind - none of the content of your
reply seemed particularly private]

Oops - seems I misremembered the error message. This is what it actually

Is that the same problem, or a different one?

This is the XF86Config-4 version of my Monitor section. I just checked
and the old XF86Config from v3 was identical except for a lot of
comments and different identifier strings.
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
Modeline "1600x1200" 162 1600 1664 1856 2160 1200 1201 1204
1250 +HSync +VSync
(minus the obvious wordwrapping of the modeline done by my mail client)
(Actually, my *current* Xf86-4 has vertrefresh 50-70 for other reasons,
but this doesn't change the error message for the 1600x1200 modeline)
Thanks again for your help!
