[opensuse-factory] TW Hangs/Crash when rotating Display
Hi,

I run a multi screen Setup as such Lenovo X1 Notebook (Displayport) -> Dell
U2715H (DP Chaining) -> Samsung SA850.

The External Screens stand upright so I have to rotate the screens.

This is my xrandr line that worked in the previous months:

xrandr --output eDP1 --primary --mode 2560x1440 --output DP1-8 --mode
2560x1440 --rotate left --right-of eDP1 --output DP1-1 --rotate left --mode
1920x1200 --right-of DP1-8

After Snapshot 2017620 the Names of the DisplayPort outputs changed from eDP-1
to eDP1 etc) and when I try to run above xrandr setup the system becomes
unresponsive. Sometimes completely crashes. When its only unresponsive it
comes back to life when I unplug the DisplayPort Cable from the Notebook.

Then I see this as a result from the xrandr command:

X Error of failed request:
BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR
Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)
Serial number of failed request: 45
Current serial number in output stream: 45

The whole setup behaves very random: Just now when wanted to document the
Error Message it worked and Both external screen came to life.

Any Ideas?

cheers
Wonko
