Thanks for the help Michele, I adapted xorg.conf to include

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
	Device		"Configured Video Device"
	DefaultDepth  24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
	EndSubSection
EndSection
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

then rebooted the system. But sadly the login screen is still displayed
with the wrong resolution (looks like 800x600 instead of
1280x1024). Again, the normal session is displayed correctly.

Any other ideas?

TIA

Patrick
