How often do you change screen resolutions?

If the answer is: Only when I have to, or never.

Select ONLY the resolution you use in dpkg-reconfigure. When you restart
X, it'll be what you like.

There is also a gnome apples call "gnome-randr"

provided by:
	gnome-randr-applet - Simple gnome-panel front end to the xrandr

Install that package and run it when logged in is another way to fix it.
