The problem still happens, when the laptop lid is closed and an external monitor is connected.

 - same laptop as in original report
 - USB mouse and keyboard connected
 - external monitor connected (HDMI-DVI cable) - Hyundai W241D

 - close laptop lid
 - boot Ubuntu 11.04 desktop i386 ISO (on a USB stick)
 - when booted, check screen resolution

It is 1024x768 and the The Monitor Preferences again offers only these 3 resolutions:

If the laptop is booted with lid open and the external monitor is attached when it is fully booted, the resolution used on the external monitor is correct (1920x1200).
