You can't use both ways simultaneously. You must choose either
xorg.conf or hotplugging. The wiki explains how you can get the old
behaviour againt, disabling hotplugging. Or you can try to configure
it. I am using it and I think it's great. In fact, I'm not using
xorg.conf anymore and I'm loving it :)
