sentence without sense when fgrlx is used

Bug Description

janito@janito-desktop:~$ apt-cache policy checkbox-gtk
  Instalado: 0.7
  Candidato: 0.7

When fglrx is used the following sentence is displayed:
"This display is using impossible with fglrx resolution."

I guess it means the resolution could not be determined because fgrlx is used, the text really needs to be improved.

Thanks for the bug report, the following question will now be prompted when the fglrx driver is detected:

This display is using the following resolution:

unknown (impossible to determine resolution with fglrx)

Is this acceptable for your display?
