Package: nvidia-settings
Version: 270.41.06-1
Severity: normal

nvidia-settings often won't let me manage my attached displays because
of this error:

ERROR: Failed to find display device 0x00100000 on screen 0 (on GPU-0)
       while parsing metamode:
       'DFP-4: nvidia-auto-select @1920x1200 +1600+0'

The only way I've figured out to work around this is to restart X.
