Default Twinview w/ laptop: disconnect and reconnect issues

Hi there,

I've got Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell Latitude D630 laptop. It's connected via a docking station to a 17" monitor. I currently have it set up in Twinview with the 17" monitor being the primary screen. No complaints there.

However - when I DISCONNECT the computer from the docking station, it continues to act like it's still in Twinview. The settings do not change and the mouse can be easily lost offscreen.

This is NOT the case with Windows XP. In XP, it automatically changes the display settings whenever a disconnect/reconnect occurs.

Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
