Gibberish on the LCD before the login screen is fine. So far as I can
tell, KDE doesn't store the resolutions, just gives you access to the
resolutions in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I'd mv ~/.kde to ~/.kde.bk on the
fouled up account and try to salvage what you can from there.

 Yup. That's what I did (and put an old CRT in place of the LCD -- gotta
swap that back today sometime) and it got me going.

The thing I noticed is that one account showed more screen resolutions than
the other, and one account had normal video while the other didn't. Since
there's only one xorg.conf, kde must be storing something somewhere. I'd
still like to find out what and where...

Many thanks
