Monitoring relevant X Window events with xev in dom0:

$ xev -root -event randr -event structure

and changing display settings, shows that after increasing resolution
XRROutputChangeNotifyEvent is not sent (only RRScreenChangeNotify,
XRRCrtcChangeNotifyEvent and ConfigureNotify), at least on my machine
(R3.2, Intel gfx and Xfce).

Watch-screen-layout-changes monitors only OutputChange events, and
that's why it doesn't detect change and doesn't execute

I think it would be better to monitor RRScreenChangeNotify event, as it
is always sent after changing display settings and it's supported in any
randr version (no need to use ConfigureNotify).

I have prepared a fix and a pull request.
