I fixed this bug the other day, you'll need to grab a new Xorg binary.

I saw that, updated my sources and rebuilt everything, including all of
Xorg.  It still claims configuration failed, but now generates a baseline
"" that has only the "nv"-based device (before, it also
generated a "vesa" device with the same PCI locator) a single monitor
(instead of 2 monitors) and a single screen (instead of 2 screens--one
referencing the "nv"-based device and one referencing the "vesa" device)
and a ServerLayout that only references the one screen (instead of both
screens that the old one did).

Unless an update build (w/"-u") is not sufficient, which sadly it
sometimes is.  In which case, I'll have to try again.
