if YellowDog and Mandrake does it  and Ubuntu doesn't, then there is
possibly a bug somewhere in the way Ubuntu does things.  You should
file a bug report, or look in Malone to see if there is already one in
there like yours.

I would guess  that  /var/log/Xorg.0.log  has some hints of what's
going wrong.  but without seeing that log, or your xorg.conf file you
get at installation, it's difficult to say.
