xrandr - Ubuntu Hardy, Debian Lenny (laptop with two external monitors)

I've had to tweak my xrandr command when moving to Debian Lenny:

Debian Lenny:

xrandr --output LVDS --off --output VGA --mode 1440x900 --crtc 0 --output TMDS-1 --mode 1440x900 --left-of VGA --crtc 1

Ubuntu Hardy:

xrandr --output LVDS --off --output TMDS-1 --mode 1440x900 --crtc 0 --output VGA --mode 1440x900 --right-of TMDS-1 --crtc 1


Why I'm not sure... If I ran xrandr the Hardy way on Debian Lenny, I got the following error:
xrandr: cannot find crtc for output VGA
