Not that i can think of. This could be the reasons why it happens:

1. You move the left or right knob of the display screen. (It happens!)
2. You run xf86config command, and you changed the settings.

If it's no.2, then run xvidtune in an xterm window. That will correct the
shifting of the screen temporarily. If you want it more permanent, then
contact me for more details.
