Hard to say.  My screen started out displaying the boot status for the
daemons (I commented out rhgb in grub.conf).  So my screen wasn't blank,
it showed the last thing that the boot sequence displayed.

The messages in Xorg.0.log were similar with no usable modes found and
the Xorg program giving up.  In my case it segv-ed, but that may be an
insignificant difference (perhaps some uninitialised mode-line data was
more benign in your case.)

I find it interesting that we effectively had the same monitor (yours
was a Dell and mine a Samsung, but otherwise had the same resolution and

In general I'd not mix and match.  In this case I "winged it" because
the major and minor Xorg versions were the smea and I figured the
ABI/API didn't change.

I agree.  That one looks darn close to what we are seeing.
