Wouldn't surprise me. "dpkg-reconfigure xorg" is the worst way to
configure. You need to know all the following in order to use it. That's
why i'm looking for xorgcfg and/or xorgconfig...

    * Graphics Card - ensure you have the correct drivers installed 
    * Your Keyboard type
    * Mouse port connection
    * Server Modules to load
    * Monitor Display Resolutions to be used
    * Horizontal and Vertical Resolutions
    * Colour Bit Depth to use
