Thanks for the precision.

That could be it, since it is indeed the best resolution at best refresh

I was pretty sure I had read somewhere that the default was to select the
highest resolution, and then the highest refresh rate for this resolution,
but I can not find it. I will try to add a PreferredMode option the next
time I restart my X11 server.

At least, I am sure it is no such thing: I do all my configuration with a
text editor, and test it by starting the Xorg server alone. Much less bad
surprises that way.

Thanks for your advice.
