I'm troubleshooting a huge unity headache, and ran unity --reset which had the effect of somehow crapping out my dual monitor settings and leaving me with mirrored displays. I can't seem to get things back the way they were (and there aren't that many options with two monitors). Does anyone know if my display settings are secretly backed up someplace? I haven't logged in or out.

I got it back with fn F7, but I don't know where it went.
