Or, just so nobody is left in the lurch, an apparently not faulty brand
new cable, that simply hasn't got any wiring between the two pins that
carry the EDID signals.  Some cheap cables only bother wire up the
video, sync, and ground pins.

And there are some monitors that don't bother to provide EDID, at all.
Though, I only expect that slackness on very old, or cheap, monitors, or
television sets with VGA inputs.

I do wonder how well EDID circuitry handles hot plugging, and whether it
gets blown by people un/plugging while all the gear is running (monitors
and computers).
