How to change resolution of login screen (i.e. gdm)?

On my old (Fedora) system when I changed the system resolution it
changed it for everything, including the gnome login screen.  This
doesn't seem to happen with Ubuntu, the login screen stays obstinately
at a rather low (and grotty) resolution and only when the user desktop
starts up does it switch to my normal 1600x1200.

Is there no way to avoid the resolution switch between logon and user
