 I have this:

exec /usr/bin/X11/X -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp $*

 Just take a look at the "Screen" section of the XF86Config-4 file,
 the different "Display" subsections look like this:

 SubSection "Display"
    Depth     16
    Modes     "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" "512x384" "320x240"

 These can have a "Virtual" entry, which is what you don't want.

 That's not a link, it's a wrapper provided by xserver-common.  You
 configure it via /etc/X11/Xwrapper.conf (see Xwrapper.conf(5)) and the
 symlink /etc/X11/X.

 I still don't understand how all this happened.
