Default Re: 302.17 nvidiaXineramaInfoOverride not working properly

In order to make vmware-workstation usable with the new driver, I disabled nvidiaXineramaInfoOverride. Now both xrandr and xinerama both see 2 monitors, 3840x1200 and 1920x1200. This is less than ideal but everything works and is usable.

nvidiaXineramaInfoOverride is only useful if all methods of determining the monitor configuration report consistently the information it provides. Having Xinerama and xrandr showing different configurations is a problem waiting to happen.

Its hard to believe that will all the flexibility built into XrandR-1.3 such as transforms and panning zones, they didn't provide a way to create a virtual crtc so fake xinerama needs could be met.
