No I'm using xorg. I loaded it, because I tought that this strange KDE
behaviour is because of the old XF. Anyway, in both xorg and XFree these are
the settings I have in their config files, and still the same bihaviour:

Section "Monitor"
Option "CalcAlgorithm" "CheckDesktopGeometry"
DisplaySize 320 240
HorizSync 30-80
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
ModelName "DELL 1800FP(ANALOG)"
Option "DPMS"
VendorName "DELL"
VertRefresh 56-85
UseModes "Modes[0]"

Section "Modes"
Identifier "Modes[0]"
Modeline "1280x1024" 157.5 1280 1344 1504 1728 1024 1025 1028 1072
+hsync +vsync

Section "Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1280x1024"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 32
Modes "1280x1024"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024"
Device "Device[0]"
Identifier "Screen[0]"
Monitor "Monitor[0]"

Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce4 MX 420"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
Option "Rotate" "off"
VendorName "NVidia"

As you can see, the max resolution is 1280x1024. But KDE Display setup allows
me (as max): 1280x960@60Hz. I even do not know where from it get this value.

Anyway, after every relogin, it always returns to 800x600 and breaks all fonts
and sizes.
