I'm not sure if I was clear or not. I can run at 1024x768 if I want, but the
1152x864 choice is missing entirely. So it's either giving me 1280x1024 (too
small) or 1024x768 (too large). My xorg.conf file lists the 1152x864
resolution, but it doesn't show up as a choice in the dialog. Also, I'm
wondering how I can remove the 800x600 and 640x480 choices from the xorg
configuration entirely, and yet they still show up in the dialog. And I have
re-booted the machine to check, not just restarted x.
