Thank you all for your suggestions - the basic problem must be in
xfce4-settings and it looks like one has to work around it - a little
surprised that the bug in displays.c is marked "Solved" though - I did
patch displays.c and reinstall it.



Let me clarify the problem:

When I start X all is dandy, likewise if I exit X and come back.
*But*, if I leave my workplace with X running long enough for the
monitors to power down, when they are powered up again the display is
mirrored and ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/displays.xml is
overwritten no matter how I try to make it read only.

Not sure what script could help me with this?
Is there a known way to lock this file?
