	XF86Config bombed instantly, even with startx.
	This afternoon after hours of testing one-change-at-a-time
	I found that the DefaultDepth of 8 is at least one thing that
	bombs.  24 works, but the max size with "X -pconfigure"s 
	xorg.conf only 1152x863(?).  A DefaultDepth of 16 gives me
	1880x1024, which is what works best for here.

	I'm still having troubl getting the Horz and Vert sync numbers
	right.  This is probably why the GUI apps "quiver" whenever I
	try anything.  My CRT is trying to tell me something when going
	blank by printing error message about "INVALID SYNC" and so 
	on. _So_ is there any tool that will auto-configure the 
	horizontal/vertical ranges?  I didn't see xvidtune in the
	X11R6 bin directory, but don't think it had this capability.
	(FWIW, my tube is a Hitachi SuperScan Eltire751.)
