Can I suggest adding a "Virtual 1280 1024" (or similar) to the
'SubSection "Display"' of 'Section "Screen"'.  I ran into some wierd
problems with multiple screens and found that the virtual size isn't
correctly initialised unless it's explicitly specified.

Also, specifying EXA acceleration is fairly mandatory: The default XAA
acceleration is broken.
