Unhappy Re: Nvidia 304.32 new xorg.conf update breaks panning

Dear Leigh,

I have reviewed the documents and I do not see anything that will not support the panning that was working up to 2 days ago. I have not changed the Kernel or graphics driver for a while, at least 1 month I would say. The kmod-nvidia for the kernel was downloaded even when I had already build it using akmods.

The panning has been working for at least 1 year. I have used the nvidia-settings utility without ever seeing an error message, not even with the "autofix"

The panning area is available, but Docky appears at the bottom of the 1920x1080 and not at the bottom of 1920x1400 level.

a. I have re-copied over the nvidia-xorg.conf and over-written the xorg.conf
b. I ran up the nvidia-settings utility, as root, and after I defined panning, while saving I got a warning that the configuration had an error, one line was too long. I chose to fix the line myself per the nvidia guide on how to setup panning.
c. The old line was too long, defining multiple un-nececessary values with "Auto". I have reduced the value to the minimum, logged out and then back in with no difference with the panning space being blank.

current stanza:-
