Okay, I have taken it out.

I adapted one (don't recall if it was one of those, or one that
someone else had suggested) and tested it. As reported in a
previous note (in response to someone else), the changes caused
no problems but did not result in a spanning desktop. At that
time I posted to the list the xorg.conf file I used, but I think
I still need to post the log.
Then aqua suggested another change, which I tried; X failed to
start with that change in the file. I will post the xorg.conf I
used, and the log of that attempt, in response to that note.
However, none of this will happen today, or possibly even
tomorrow. I am grateful for all the help everyone has given me,
but right now I have to get some other higher-priority things
done before I can come back to trying to solve this problem.
