...however, having got the dual-head thing working, it seems that the laptop is reluctant to acknowledge the lack of existence of the second display without a reboot. Restarting X isn't sufficient. Gah.

It also acts strangely with the XRandR extention (that allows dynamic screen geometry changes):

ajm@RS-031:~$ grep RandR /var/log/Xorg.0.log

(**) RandR enabled
ajm@RS-031:~$ xrandr
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".

If you're intending to run X on a laptop, avoid Intel 915GM embedded graphics.
