Hi Lutz,

This is a long-known issue (bug 3731).  There are several ways you can
work around it, however:

1.  Remove your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, and allow Xorg to autodetect
everything.

   # mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.myorig
   # reboot

In the future, we plan to do something like this, to allow Xorg to
handle autodetection.

2.  Run 'displayconfig-gtk' to select your monitor and video card.

   This is the fallback solution we plan to use in the future.  It
requires that you know both the monitor and video card, and that both
are also listed in our databases.

3.  Specify your monitor's exact refresh rates in xorg.conf

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"Standardbildschirm"
	Option		"DPMS"
	HorizSync	<<specify horizontal sync>>
	VertRefresh	<<specify vertical refresh>>
EndSection

4.  In xorg.conf, remove the refresh rates:

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"Standardbildschirm"
	Option		"DPMS"
EndSection
