xrandr fails to set the mode correctly, but claims it is in 48 Hz mode
Telling xrandr to switch to 48 Hz mode with
xrandr --rate 48 makes the screen go black for a moment, and xrandr says it is now running at 48 Hz, but applications which wait for vsync still swap roughly 60 times per second.
The display is connected to eDP.
$ uname -r
$ uname -m
See the attachment for a log of me running xrandr to show the current state, then switching the output refresh rate, then running xrandr to show it again, and then running glxgears to show that it's still swapping at roughly 60 Hz.
