I am embarrassed to say that I have found the bug: it was in the monkey
on the keyboard.
I had a DisplaySize in xorg.conf which was in cm when man xorg.conf
tells me it should be in mm. I have no idea why this only showed up with
a package upgrade - maybe before the probe from ddc took precedence.
Anyway, sorry for all the noise, but I learnt a little :-)
