Package: xserver-xfree86
Version: 4.3.0-2
Severity: important

reportbug seems to have grabed more information than I know what is,
hopefully its stuff you all want it to be grabbing. I'm sorry for the
resulting size of the email.

specifically i want to draw something to your attention: my
XF86Config-4 file doesn't match the debconf settings. this is because
when I found X wasn't matching the config after the upgrade to 4.3, i
tried to reconfigure the package, and it didn't re-write the file,
even when i tried moving it out of the way first.

secondly, using the XF86Config-4 file below, when I start X with
startx -- :1
since i have not shut down the X session i'm currently running from
before the upgrade (thankfully), it doesn't work right. instead of
showing any of the resolutions listed below as available in a
recognizable way, it shows something that looks rather like 640x480
except that if the mose hits the edge of the screen it scrolls.
Pressing control-alt-+ and control-alt-- do not have any noticable
affect.  nor does changing the default color depth in the file, except
that if i comment out the section for that color depth, i can change
the behavior such that it will realize there are no available screens.

This makes the package almost entirely unusable for me, since if i
were to restart, I'd loose the ability to set my resolution to
anything better.
