Default Re: Twinview not working and nvidia-settings crashing on T61 (Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M)

Though it'd be an inconvenient workaround, I wonder if you might be able to get things to work by
- connecting the external monitor and then
- (re)starting X
(perhaps by something like "startx -- :1"
to start a new X server on top of the
existing one)

It's disruptive, but a lot less so than rebooting. I've usually gone through this when attaching my laptop to an external projector.

I hadn't tried nvidia-settings to re-detect displays,
will see whether that works for me. It'd sure be nice.
