Package: xfce4-settings
Version: 4.12.0-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I had reported that my second monitor would not wake up after suspend with 4.5
or newer kernels.  That was fixed with xfce-settings-4.12.0-3 (appeared on
testing this week), but now when I wake the system up from sleep the second
monitor is mirrored from the first, even though I did not set it that way in
the settings window.  Try as I may, the settings go away after suspend.  It
works correctly at initial boot, but once it goes to sleep it wakes up
mirrored.  It can be re-set each time, but that is a nuisance.

My system is a Gigabyte brix i3, GB-BXi3-4010.  Monitor #1 is connected via the
one HDMI port, second monitor connected via a mini-dp port.  It worked fine
with kernel 4.3 and xfce4-4.12.0-1.
