I've just burned a 3.2 CD from April 15th BETA and there are problems with one 
17 '' LCD monitor with the automatic hardware detection:
a) knoppix 3.1:
monitor is TVT0048
=> works without problems
b) knoppix 3.2 beta:
monitor is TVT0048, Hi 28.0 - 96.0 Khz, V: 50 -75 Khz
=> horizontal value of 96 is too high, should be 80; therefore the screen 
flickers and goes very quick from right to left - unusuable

It works pretty ok for another 15'' LCD where ddcxinfo-knoppix -monitor gives 
the right modelines (ModelName DNV0097) etc.
The results for the 17'' LCD I've put online
