Angry Nvidia 304.32 new xorg.conf update breaks panning

I have F16 for my laptop machine, with both Twin-View and Panning on the "laptop screen" enabled and all has well for about 1 year.
1. I performed a "yum update" and I found that xorg,conf - I believe was available as an update, and I accepted it. The Nvidia driver has not been upgraded for a while.
2. I got a new Logitech TrackBall mouse and I wanted to test it out so I rebooted my PC.
- I placed the mouse in a USB 3.0 socket, my USB 2.0 was occupied by my phone.

Since that change my Panning, only configured on the laptop screen, is half-working.
Main laptop screen: 1920x1080 , with panning: 1920x1400

On restart, the PC would not go into graphical mode on the boot console, it hung there. I removed the Logitech mouse from the USB3.0 port and my laptop booted fine. After login:
a. Its the first time that I have noticed the large Nvidia logo have a small RED "beta" label at the bottom of it
b. I found that the Gnome had started in fall-back mode and
c. The Desktop background only covered the "standard" part of the screen and not the
additional lower "panned" part of the screen.
d. The "system Tray" and the external Disks, on my Docking Station all appear at the
bottom of the lower panned area
e. Docky, set to "auto-hide", is activated at the bottom of the "standard" part of the
screen and not the additional lower "panned" part of the screen. This worked
previously prior to upgrade
f. Trying to update the nvidia-settings now produces errors, stating that entries must
have unique names and some entry names are too long and I clicked the auto-repair

Remedies tried:-
1. I removed the xorg.conf entries for the Logitech Trackball mouse and logged out/in - no change
1. Saved the original xorg.conf file and copied over the contents from the xorg-nvidia.conf, and restarted the machine, no change

Not sure what else to do ....
