Yes, on all the Radeon cards I have tried Debian (and its derivatives) creates an xorg.conf file that does not work, and if I delete it and start X, the card just works beautifully. Its as if Debian and its derivatives were staffed by Nvidia employees.
Concerning the Matrox G400, I used to use a G450, and its DVI output has a rather limited bandwidth that allows only 1280x1024 with regular modes. I used a special mode to make it display 1600x1200.
