Description Laszlo Valko 2012-01-02 01:26:45 UTC
/usr/bin/xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1440x1100
used to work on my laptop.
With the latest stable x11-base/xorg-server-1.11.2-r2, or with x11-base/xorg-server-1.11.3, it no longer works. Reverting to x11-base/xorg-server-1.10.4-r1 makes it working again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to xorg-server-1.11.[23]
2. use xrandr --panning
Actual Results:  
Panning is not available when the mouse hits the sides of the desktop.

Expected Results:  
Panning should be available when the mouse hits the sides of the desktop.

xrandr resizes the desktop correctly, as it can be seen from the output of xrandr, however, the mouse is not allowed to pan the display.

With 1.11.2, a maximum of a single pixel of panning can be achieved with the mouse, however, this has been "corrected" in 1.11.3, and now not a single pixel of panning is possible.
