Check your /var/log/XFree86.0.log file from a startup where the screen
went wonky.  You may find that it's either overriding (or not overriding
anymore) your HorizSynch and VertRefresh settings, which seem pretty
bizarre to me.  Worst case scenario, you can just punch in fixed values
for those settings that you know will work with the resolution you want
to use...
