I recently installed Debian on my titanium powerbook and had the same
problem; nothing I would modify in XF86Config-4
would fix it.  It fixed itself when I recompiled a custom kernel,
paying close attention to the various options.  Ever since then the
display hasn't had any problems.

If you'd like a copy of my .config file, email me.
