Some things to try:

1) Udlfb reports fb_defio and console settings to the kernel log.  Run
"dmesg | grep udlfb" and make sure the options are taking.
2) su and copy a large file to the framebuffer (cat file txt >
/dev/fb0). Does the screen change?
3) Double-check the xorg.conf against the one at

It should hopefully be something simple ...
