Ive also been having real trouble getting a clean new xorg.conf setup using 

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

even with the dexconf command you suggest and removing /etc/X11/X I seem to 
put some remnants from my old xfree86 setup (screen resolutions) in 

I have a different monitor and video card now and want to start from scratch - 
only dpkg-reconfigure won't let me.  The xorg.conf file says something about 
using information from debconf.  Where is this information stored or how can 
I tell dpkg-reconfigure not to use it.
