I suppose one could, by editing a relevant file. Unfortunately I don't know what file to edit. You may want to check the /etc/X11 directory to search for it. Btw, are you sure it's X and not remnants from the swapfile about the screen?
@ntubski: at the end of the bootsequence, just before Gnome comes up, I see the remnants of the screen as it was before the last shutdown. It also happens when I reboot after a Live-CD session. That means that it has to come from the swapfile, just before it's flushed (I have my PC on mains 24/7, so volatile memory (aka RAM) is still powered, even when the machine was off for the night) Worth noting: I have 1 GB RAM on a nForce 2 chipset.
