I reply to myself, after having received good advices from Hasan and
Sishir (many thanks...).

So the problems seems that ltsp is not calculating /etc/X11/xorg.conf in
a good way for my test client

So I defined an ltsp root password and compared the calculated xorg.conf
with the xorg.conf defined by a workstation edubuntu install.

Differences : 
- ltsp choosed the video-driver "i810" for my "Intel 82815" videocard.
- worksation install choosed "intel" driver

- In the "Monitor" section, ltsp assigned "HorizSync 30.0 - 70.0" and
"VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0"
- nothing such with the workstation install.

- In the "Screen" section, ltsp tries different color depth, but no
display subsection.
- workstation install defines a display subsection with  
          Modes   "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

Then I've inserted a "xorg-intel.conf" and a "xorg-i810.conf"
in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11/

and then "sudo ltsp-update-image"

I made a /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf with

#	XF86CONFIG_FILE = /etc/X11/xorg-intel.conf
	XF86CONFIG_FILE = /etc/X11/xorg-i810.conf

The two drivers are working well, so the problem seems to use just
horizSync and no display mode

So I'm going to append at the bug opened by Hasan :
