Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-intel

The laptop Dell Studio 1569 http://www.linlap.com/wiki/dell+studio+1569 has "VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 12)" VGA card. If I use both LCD and external HDMI-connected monitor (in panorama mode) - both LCD and the HDMI screen work properly.

If I disable the LCD (Administration->Monitors->Select LCD->Select "Off"->press Apply), then *both* LCD and HDMI monitor become black! VNC session to the laptop from a different machine shows everything as if the LCD was disabled and the HDMI became my primary desktop.

The feature worked in maverick and stopped working in natty.
