Hmm...  Regarding that bug, I see in your xorg.conf you have a screen
section, but no display subsection.  Does adding a display subsection
with the following, in the screen section, work?

Subsection "Display"
	Virtual 1920 1200

The way I remember it, since I've not tried in a long time, is that including a display subsection is totally pointless when the driver in use is KMS, meaning FOSS, for intel, nouveau & radeon. Since KMS went mainstream, I have had display subsections configured only for legacy intel (810), r128, mga and sis gfxchips, all of which see little uptime here any more. For those old chips virtual still works, but with KMS, panning since server 1.10.3 or whatever was latest when https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=39949 was filed only works via xrandr, hence the quoted bug report.
