This is just wicked, xdpyinfo says:
dimensions: 1440x900 pixels (381x238 millimeters)
resolution: 96x96 dots per inch
LVDS connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 304mm x 190mm
Of course xrandr is right, that's the values supplied by the screen.
I suspect xdpyinfo just takes the pixel dimensions and resolutions
and calculates the screen dimensions:
25.4 * 1440 / 96 = 381
Or the intel driver does it. But why should xrandr show the correct
After running "xrandr --dpi 120" xdpyinfo shows the correct values.
