the reason for above is either in the man pages and these archives.
essentially once you've editted XF86Config (changed the md5) then
package managers assume you won't want them to write all over your
changes. the fix is also in said sources

Its actually in the header of the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file. It tells you how to reset the MD5 sum of the file before running dpkg-reconfigure to ensure the file is recreated. It also advises you to back up the config file first, especially important if you have edited by hand, e.g. added specific monitor mode lines etc.
