I don't think that the sentence: "If it exists, it uses it." solves
described problem.

The xorg.conf doesn't work fine after installation/upgrade. I use my
notebook (1440x900) in the dock with external LCD (1280x1024) and the
resolutions are incorrect after starting up. The resolution doesn't
match to resolution in the xorg.conf.

I use xrandr then everything is fine (for dual monitors).

But settings of xorg.conf during installation should be used and this
isn't.
