Observation: the GUI is intact except that the
X-coordinate of the mouse is to the left of the
X-coordinate of the display.

Here is primitive remedy. Take the mouse to the
lower left corner of the frame. The icon for the
main GUI menu in the toolbar will brighten when
the pointer strikes it. Select with left mouse
button, LM. Track up to Preferences, right and
down to Monitor Settings and LM. Strike <Enter>
to open the resolution menu. Use <down arrow>
to reach resolution 1024 x 768. Strike <Enter>.
<tab> to OK. Strike <Enter>. At this resolution
the mouse and display coordinates are aligned
... and the VESA driver isn't used; good!

The new setting isn't preserved through a restart
of X11; bad. Patience or dexconf might help
... maybe.

In principle, 1280 x 960 should work. Meanwhile,
a broken resoluton is a bad choice for a default.

TTFN, ... Peter E.
