Do you really want x-window-system and twm? Seems like a rough way to start out. Most people go with the default 'desktop' task. (Not that this would solve the particular problems you're having with your X configuration. That's probably something else.)
Also I wholeheartedly agree with Daniel that you don't want to be using dselect. Use apt-get or aptitude from the command-line, or synaptic in X.
As for debugging your X configuration, if you do a normal desktop install, that stuff is autoconfigured for you, so you shouldn't have to do it by hand (most of the time).
