My understanding was if "640x480" is the only mode listed and it's valid then it should use it. So I'm not sure what's happening.

X looks for /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, then /etc/X11/XF86Config just in case you happen to have both which you shouldn't.

You try "startx -- -logverbose 5" or just "X -logverbose 5"
then look at /var/log/XFree86.0.log and see what it says.
