This is not an old config. This is the new config that comes with 0.5.0, 
you should not need to remove it.
If you do not want to use Xdummy, just comment out "xvfb=" in the 
config, or even set it to use Xvfb explicitly (the config contains 
examples for both)

If you remove it, xpra *should* go back to using Xvfb as this is still 
the overall default.

Unless you have another "xvfb=" option in ~/.xpra/xpra.conf, but since 
you didn't know about this file until I mentioned it, you don't ;)

Weird, looks like an Xorg running with a non-Xdummy config.

FWY: I am adding info to the DPI ticket, I cannot reproduce it here 
(story of my life) but others can, so we should be able to get to the 
bottom of this one.
