gah, xfce4's control panel doesnt do that for me, though it used to on
another older notebook i was using. for the life of me i cant remember what
i did to make this happen then and not not. my xorg.conf is minimal.
using xvidtune or ctrl-atl-numpad+ does switch video modes, but the virtual
screen remains at the larger 1400x1050 size, thus giving that pan effect.
would anyone hit me with a cluebat on how to fix this ?
 i never had this problem before, so i've obviously goofed up somewhere
in porting over xorg.org.
