Yes I did. I was wrong, I didn't set the ModeLine, I set the Modes
to "1280x1024" in the Display sections. Then when I started xfce4
if would come up right. Before it would start then xorg would crash.
I think it was probing for higher resolutions and by limiting it I
was able to get xfce4 to start up.
Speaking of ModeLines, I have to find one now. I came home and my
Proview LCD was caputz. I called them, they will warranty it. But
I have to ship it to California. Now I'm hooking my old crt up, no
fun once you have used an LCD.
