Marc, thanks for the tip!

Yes, I was using KDE. I couldn't find a command line alternative to get this
information and didn't even think of checking the monitor itself.

The monitor reports 1280x1024 @ 60 Hz, so it looks like all is well (apart
from what KDE reports).

Having said that, I checked my laptop last night and found the same behavior,
KDE reports that the display is at 50 Hz when I have set it for 60 Hz.

Of course, there are no monitor controls on the laptop to get at the OSD
information. Is there a reliable way to get the refresh rate information for
a laptop?
