I've experienced same with 4.0.1.
recently another user posted this link to an app that may in fact help 
with configuring older monitors. I've not tested it myself but at least 
one other user has confirmed it working.


You may also try:
which has links to two client configuring apps. There is reportedly a 
webmin mod that is to help with configuring clients but, apparently, has 
not worked in a long time, if ever.

Old monitors are plentiful and cheap, if K12LTSP had better support 
tools for them we'd so a lot more interest from cash strapped schools 
and businesses in the LTSP suite. /my $.02
