Is it the same if you try to put the LVDS on the left on the VGA monitor?

What if you remove the xorg.conf Right-Of stuff and just call xrandr?
You never get the "oversized" screen right? (I just want to be sure that
only the xorg.conf stuff is broken, and that runtime xrandr changes are ok).
Make sure you try the latest xserver-xorg-video-ati from experimental
and xserver-xorg-core from unstable. If they don't help, I will forward
this bug upstream.
