Just a guess: you're running at less than 1280x1024.
You should check the log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log). The actual resoulution is
Screensaver or not is really ok with me but are there any more
suggestions that might solve my display problem? I am reasonably sure
the LCD is running at 1280x1024. Does anyone know specifically how
openbox is told the display size to use? I could then ask on the
sparc-debian mailing list how to find out if this is working correctly.

I have three other questions about openbox:
What is a "docking application" as discussed in the documentation?
What is the difference between using openbox or openbox-session to start
openbox? I don't think the documentation is very clear on this.
What is the difference between starting some applications through
.Xsession before openbox is started vs. having openbox start them?
