Changes to Monitor Resolution did not take effect.
VMWare warned that extmod (XFree86 DGA) was not enabled (it was in
DPMS was not working, even though / etc/X11/XF86Config had the options set for
DPMS, BlankTime, StandbyTime and SuspendTime.

After much delving into this problem, I found that YaST2 and I were fiddling
with the wrong X configuration file.

Maybe 9.1 uses the xorg version of X, or I did something to invoke this, but
the config file I needed was /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I created it in text mode with xf86cfg.

When I finished tweaking this file, EVERYTHING works like it did before upgrade
to 9.1 from 9.0.
