He is probably simply quoting what he sees at every VT login prompt:
"Debian GNU/Linux lenny/sid". There is no need to bark at him like that.

As he says quite clearly, he can no longer choose the monitor resolution
like he used to, because the configuration dialog now stops after the
mouse questions. There is no need to bark at him like that.

That remains to be seen. If the dialog is gone now and Xorg cannot
figure things out on its own then this may well qualify as a bug. In any
case, he has a Debian-related problem and he asked for help on the
debian-user list. There is no need to bark at him like that.
