Comment 31 for bug 42553

Bryce: it isn't merely cosmetic. There are many users who are having problems and when it's suggested they do something like "gksu ..." they report back that they got errors and it's purely down to these incorrect lines. The amount of wasted *volunteer* effort and disgruntled new users is not cosmetic either.

The proper fix may be awkward, needing input hotplugging, but some workaround is needed in the meantime. Having a user edit xorg.conf stops it being updated in future. It's unacceptable that a novice user should have to be put in this position.
