Thanks ALOT for your input!

I don't have that much resolutions options to chose from. And as you
mention this, i noticed i can chose between 2 very odd values
1366x768 or 1360x768

I first tought it would make a big difference, (as you can see on this
screenshot it is clearly not properly aligned to the screen raster
http://sakrecoer.com/pixelerror.png )

But no... no noticeable change...

I'll try to fibble with gama and the xrandr command which seems to allow
me to use custom sizes. However, i must confess that i fear this hole
issue is, in my case, due to the hardware configuration i run. I'll keep
you posted if i make any progress :)

Thanks a zillion again for your time,
