After upgrading from lenny to sqeeuze last year I faced witha problem of

Problem has been overcome in this way:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2011/04/msg00294.html

After installing the kernel linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 I have
problems with fonts/video again: when loading new kernel I have a small
screen size so as in console as in X11.
I exclude "video = LVDS-1:640 x 480" from grub configuration. After that
the new kernel load fine, but I have very small fonts in my console so
as last summer after upgrading from lenny to squeeze.
Have any ideas?

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying above....

Try the following in /etc/default/grub
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset
video=uvesafb:mode_option=$finalresolutionanddepth,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"

Then run:-
# update-grub

Where $finalresolutionanddepth is something like 1024x768-32 (eg.
800x600-24) depending on what you use on the desktop.

NOTE: this is not the same as as the xrandr instruction you are/were using.

Now I have the next configuratuon of /etc/default/grub:
GRUB_DEFAULT=2
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="video=LVDS-1:640x480 ipv6.disable=1"
(which works well with the kernel from official distro but not with the
kernel from bpo).
Do I need exclude "video=LVDS-1:640x480" from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX for
using your config?
And where I need place my record "ipv6.disable=1" - in the string
"GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT" of leave it in "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX"?

Don't you have any values for "GRUB_GFXMODE" or
"GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX" set in "/etc/default/grub"? You have to set
them to the resolution that you want to use.

"GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT" sets the command line for the regular
menu entry and "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX" sets the command line for both the
regular and the recovery menu entries.
