Unhappy nvidia-settings not restoring Brightness settings with --load-config-only

Hello,

Basically, running
/usr/bin/nvidia-settings --load-config-only --config=~/.nvidia-settings-rc
doesn't restore the monitor brightness settings (even though they're there under the monitor controls). However, just running /usr/bin/nvidia-settings restores them!

Also, note that this problem is present only if RANDR is enabled. If it's disabled (by enabling Xinerama), the controls appear in a different place, under "X Server Color Correction", and then the command works correctly.

I think this is a regression, since the problem appeared after I upgraded from 295.59 to 304.43 (now I'm on 304.60).

Thanks!
