After the problem, I shutdown, undocked, rebooted, shutdown, docked with
25" display connect, restarted, went to System>Screen Resolution and
selected 1920x1200.  Worked fine.  Last time I did not go to Screen
Resolution and ran sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg.

Well anyway, I have wide screen, laptop LCD turned off like it did in

Now back to work.
