Really strange resolution problems on xorg with a laptop

I have a HP Pavilion dv5000 and any "standard" xorg app like xterm or
anything else that comes with xorg seems to work fine but every other X
application has either HUGE (one character fills the whole screen) fonts
and/or other weirdness (it could be fonts but who knows).... I just did
a complete reinstall from sources (portmaster).... the FB version is
8-CURRENT (current as of last night) and the ports tree from the same time
