After the last upgrade of the fglrx-driver (8.44.3-1 from Debian Sid) my
Thinkpad with a Mobility Radeon X1400 would no longer produce the
maximum resoltion. I purged it and installed the previous version from
the ATI site to restore things. The RadeonHD driver doesn't work properly
for me; it also gives lower resolution and my xterms are corrupt, with
a double cursor which makes them unusable.
