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
