Same problem on a DELL E4200.
I was also unable to switch on an external display of 1920x1200 (and switch off laptop screeen). I finally succeed in removing monitors.xml in .config, and restart xorg. I suspect the bug is more related to compiz than xorg.
(I've also try to add an output of correct resolution in the general setting of compiz, tab display settings, ... not sure whether this has changed something)
