Thanks for that!
I think I'll keep waiting for the patched version to come out for my distro 
(32bit Xubuntu 16.04) as I'm really trying to avoid installing dev tool and 
compiling from source... I guess I'm just too old and grumpy now and prefer to 
spend time using my computers than fixing them. I already filled my quota of 
applying manual patches for things to just work in the 90's :D.

Anyway, I really appreciate the effort many of you guys put into making
my life easier with great, open software.

Bug description:
  I had an HTPC with Mythbuntu 12.04 installed.  Upon upgrading a new
  behavior that if the TV is power cycled it no longer detects a link
  with the HTPC.

  When this happens I can find in the xorg log that there is an
  accompanying log item:

  [ 39829.509] (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "NULL"

  After debugging with NVIDIA at
  detected/ we've deteremined it's a X client that reacts to the RANDR
  events causing the mode to be set to NULL.

  Working through the list in an Xfce environment, the culprit is
  xfsettingsd.  If xfsettingsd is running, it causes the TV to come up
  in a NULL mode.  If it's killed, it remains in the mode it was
  previously running in.

  Until this is fixed, this behavior can be worked around with a simple shell 
  #Fix TV state when HDMI link is lost.

  for MODE in $BAD_MODE $GOOD_MODE; do
   DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE
   sleep 2
