Seems to be the same as my problem (as described in bug #461501).
Try running 'grep AL2016W /var/log/Xorg.0.log' and see if you get
Output XXX using monitor section AL2016W
It will probably be the wrong output. To get it right change the
identifier in your "Monitor" Section to the output name or so. See
http://wiki.debian.org/XStrikeForce/HowToRandR12 for details.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
