Description of problem:
I'm having difficulties with the default xorg-x11 configuration with Fedora Core 4 (see Bug 161495).  Mike Harris suggested disabling "dri" in the configuration file to correct.  It did.

However, when I ran system-config-display to change resolution, it put back "dri" as a part of the modules to be loaded in X - reintroducing my original problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Comment out a module in xorg.conf.
2. Run system-config-display - change something - save.
3. Open xorg.conf.

Actual Results:  Commented out portions are added back to the configuration file.

Expected Results:  system-config-display should honor the comments and leave them out!

Should no longer be doing this in FC6.  Please reopen if this is still an issue
for you.
