I've got a Toshiba M30, and am also using the nvidia driver.
I am switching a lot between beamers, CRTs etc. ,
so I am not using debconf at all, IIRC it also did not handle my
default display's resolution of 1024x800 correctly - so I use to
edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 by hand. I don't want to discourage you
from trying to manage your config with debconf, but it sure is quite 
painless to copy your XF86Config-4 to p.e. XF86Config-4-debconf,
remove the debconf marks in it and try some configurations with different
display settings -I bet, that debconf actually ignores your extra resolutios.
I appended my own /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 as an example; don't simply
copy it, if you display can't handle 1024x800.
