After running Xorg -configure and startx on a freshly installed
FreeBSD 6.2 system, I get the following error:

Parse error on line 47 of section Monitor in file /root/xorg.conf
"" is not a valid keyword in this section
(EE) problem parsing the config file
(EE) error parsing the config file

I then looked at section Monitor and saw the following:

Section "Monitor"
     ModelName "IBM 6274 17 ""

After removing the extra quote, X works fine, but I was just wondering
if anyone else has had this problem.
