Interesting - I have this:

 Modes    "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1280x720" "1152x864" "1152x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

What should it look like?

Sounds like a good idea. Is there some way to have F8 automatically
regenerate the file, like it does on installation? Or do I need to do it
automatically? I haven't figured that one out yet.

I actually haven't seen this problem for a little while - a few days at
least. It is rather inconsistent.

Upstream with X, I assume? I hadn't filed a bug yet because I was hoping
to characterize the problem a bit more first, but I should probably just
file it, then add more detail when I have it.
