Hi I am having an issue after disconnecting from an external monitor that my display is enlarged the windows run off the screen so I can open catalyst control or settings->display to try and see what the problem is. I'm thinking its from unplugging from my monitor but Ubuntu is usually smart enough to figure that out. Any one whose had a similar problem or anyone with suggestions I'd greatly appreciate your help

I have no solution but I can confirm this.

I've experienced the same problem a couple of times. I plug in the TV from time to time and sometimes I am stuck with a 3000+resolution after!

I disable the TV. It goes away after restart, but it is really annoying.
