I wasn't able to re-test this with a fresh install of Hardy Alpha 5 because of an install problem. However if I run dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg with the latest updates, X comes up in low resolution mode. It appears it can no longer automatically detect my card but if I enter the settings manually then everything is then fine. Please close.
