You raise an interesting point.  This seems to happen when
I go back and forth between my external display and laptop

winWindowProc - WM_DISPLAYCHANGE - orig bpp: 32, last bpp: 32, new bpp:32
winWindowProc - WM_DISPLAYCHANGE - new width: 1280 new height: 1024

This is the message in my Xwin.log that appears after a successful
startx and later hibernate if I switch displays.  

But still, this is a new problem - I didn't see this before with
my older XP laptop.  I'm wondering if this is a startx on Vista
issue, or if it's hardware (display or hibernate) config related.
