comment How to apply/reload X settings after changes to xorg.conf.d configuration files
You can try out your settings by starting a new X with startx if you have a correct .XClients / .xinitrc, that is, there is a program at the end that keeps X running. Usually the program is a window manager (like /usr/bin/fluxbox) but I just entered /usr/bin/xterm. xset q might show you some values. Switch between the running X servers with ctrl-alt-F<n> (e.g. ctrl-alt-f7).

comment Why do linux kernels include files for all devices?
I've been quite lazy when it comes to updating my kernel, but the kernels I have built for my x86_64 are about 3.5MB (vmlinuz) + 1.8MB (System.map) (from kernel versions in the range 2.6.37-3.2.1). Most drivers are built-in. I see that my /lib/modules is 44MB though... (Yes, I use Gentoo :) )

Had this problem over remote desktop. Clicking the "Show Desktop" button solved it for me. edit. Killing and restarting explorer.exe did not help.
