Default Disable keyword in Module section not recognized

"Disable" keyword in Module section is not recognized by nvidia-xconfig or nvidia-settings (XF86Config-parser):
PARSE ERROR:  Parse error on line 15 of section Module in file
"Disable" is not a valid keyword in this section.
Example lines:
Section "Module"
    Disable "dri"
This keyword is documented in xorg.conf man page:
Disable "modulename"
This instructs the server to not load the module called modulename.
Some modules are loaded by default in the server, and this overrides
that default. If a Load instruction is given for the same module, it
overrides the Disable instruction and the module is loaded. The module
name given should be the module's standard name, not the module file
name. As with the Load instruction, the standard name is case-sensitive,
and does not include the "lib" prefix, or the ".a", ".o", or ".so" suf‐
This bug was noticed by a Mandriva Linux user (Mandriva bug #53937).

Default Re: Disable keyword in Module section not recognized

Thank you, Anssi. I've filed a bug in our internal bug tracker, but as usual, I have to point out that nvidia-settings is open source software and patches are welcome.
