Ok, so this is only about screen size? Xgl does support DGA at the
moment (AFAIR the accrynom correctly ;) . I was using q3a in windowed
mode without grabbing mouse and keyboard.

If you want to play full-screen on 800x600, try

xrandr -s 800x600 ; q3a ; xrandr -s 0

Not for me, this worked perfectly.

Maybe you want to try to run it with the Mesa OpenGL libraries, as there
are issues with using NVidia's libraries on top of Xgl (you still need
NVidia's libraries for runing Xgl itself). Otherwise you can disable
multitexture support (forgot the switch command in q3), then it will
work as well. This seems to be a bug in NVidia's libGL.
