Shift-Props is just the default combination, it can be
remapped.  See 'man utslaunch.properties'.  Or
somebody could throw together a quick graphical
launcher and include that in the CAM desktop..

If you do '-c default -t default' then that should force
the monitor timing on every token transition.

What firmware versions are running in these units?

The Sun Ray firmware used to have problems parsing
version 3 EDID blocks, mostly because we hadn't been
able to exercise that code until V3 EDID starting being
advertised by newish flat panel monitors, so if these
units have old firmware that might explain this
behaviour.  That bug was fixed over a year ago so any
firmware released since last August or thereabouts
shouldn't have that problem.
