Comment 5 for bug 619663

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-intel

Laptop has 1400x1050 internal panel and is attached to an external screen which is 1680x1050. If I set the screens to mirror then I can have the same on both screens and this works fine. If I set them not to mirror then the secondary (external) screen is black but I can _just_ about move the mouse onto it. i can see the cursor on the second screen but its not usable because it only goes a few pixels onto the second screen before hitting a 'wall'.
