Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.3+10
Severity: normal

dexconf writes an incomplete X config file in the Screen Section:

Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"

should be:

Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
	Device		"Configured Video Device"

Attached is a patch modifying that,

Yeah the xorg.conf manpage is often one year behind the actual Xserver
behavior :) Feel free to send a patch to update the manpage, we'll apply it.

Closing this bug now.
