Xorg exhibits 3 problems possibly because of Dual 4550 Radeon cards.
1) (this bug report)  Xorg -configure   ends with segmentation violation.
2) Not using mode "1920x1080" (height too large for virtual size).
3) (after #2 is fixed)  xrandr -q   lists only one card.

Xorg -configure shouldn't be used anymore. No xorg.conf is needed in most cases, and in other cases a minimal xorg.conf can be used these days.
