I noticed with one of my older machines (one that has a graphics card
that does not properly display the "Lubuntu" with the dots under it
during the boot process), on 11.10, I had to press the "Auto adjust"
button on the monitor after booting, or things on the screen would be
cut off at the edges.  

But that problem went away with 12.04.  I have not had to hit the
auto-adjust monitor button any more (though it still doesn't display
properly during the boot process).
