You can also use xrandr to force settings that are not
present in xorg.conf or cannot be configured properly:

	xrandr --fb 1680x1050
	xrandr --size 1680x1050

I'm using this "hack" to convince X to run my monitor
at 1400x1050 which it doesn't seem to be able to anymore
(unlike XFree86 - same system, GPU, and monitor).
