Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

Upgrading Kubuntu 9.10 -> 10,04 RC

After the upgrade the sides of the display were bowed out like the display was being overdriven. Used the systemsettings kcm to change the refresh rate from 75hz to auto and the mishape went away. Now the display flickers.

Switching from 1600 X 1200 to 1280 X 1024 resolved the flicker. 1600 X 1200 worked fine in 9.10.
