Recently updated my laptop to Fedora 16.  Fedora 16 is not detecting my 
second, external, monitor.  The Monitor connects with an HDMI connector 
or a DVI connector through a USB docking station.  Connecting it either 
way does not make a difference.  What is strange is that during the boot 
process, the system will display the flash screen on the second monitor.

There was a bug filed about this before Fedora 15 was released.  Does 
this bug still exist in Fedora 16?  Does anyone know if any work has 
been done on it?  The bug deals with the Intel Sandybridge chipset.  
Note that the laptop screen works fine.

    OS:             Fedora 16 x86_64
    Kernel:        3.1.1-1.fc16.x86_64
    Desktop:    Gnome 3.0.1
    System:      Dell XPS 15R (i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz x 4)
    Graphics:    Intel Sandybridge Mobile
    Memory:     8 GB
