I don't know the cause of this problem, but I can confirm that the same
thing happened to two of my friends with i386 boxes. It wrote out broken
XF86Config-4 files that used the 'vga' driver and generic screen settings.
This is apparently a bug in the 4.1.0-10 configuration scripts, and you
should bring it up on debian-x along with any additional information so
that it can be fixed.
