Public bug reported:

Affects: kdebase kcontrol (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

My powerbook has a screen resolution of 1280x854.
In the System Settings (kcontrol), the Display part shows a list of screen resolutions which do not include the one above. The closest is 1280x800. The bug is: before touching anything, the screen resolution was fine; now, after having selected 1280x800, I can't change back to 1280x854, and the fonts look slightly fuzzy (and I'm getting a headache).
The /etc/X11/xorg.conf only lists entries with 1280x854 in the 'screen' section. The System Settings don't reflect this resolution, plus offers no obvious way to revert.
