Bug Fix

Previously, when a user hit the system's hot-key (most commonly Fn+F7) to change display configurations, the system could potentially switch to an invalid mode, which would fail to display. With this update, gnome-desktop now selects valid XRandR modes and correctly switching displays with the hot-key works as expected.
All users of gnome-desktop are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
