I attached a patch that adds a proposed paragraph to the bottom of the issues
file. I dual-licence it under the GPLv2 and the WTFPLv2

+    The driver for Intel Mobile GM965 may wrongly detect a VGA output and set
+    the size of the screen to a lower value to accomodate it. The symptom of
+    this bug is that the desktop manager will only use a fraction of the screen.
+    Correct behaviour can be forced by adding the following lines to the
+    <filename>/etc/X11/xorg.conf</filename> configuration file.
+    <screen>
+Section "Monitor"
+  Identifier "VGA"
+  Option "Ignore" "true"
+    </screen>
+    Please refer to the bug <ulink url="&url-bts;/496169">#496169</ulink>
+    for more informations.
