[Bug 640416] New: xrandr: --dpi option not honored

Summary: xrandr: --dpi option not honored
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.3
Version: Final
Platform: x86
OS/Version: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: Minor
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X.Org
AssignedTo: bnc-team-xorg-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I have an xorg.conf carried over from 11.2 onto 11.3, where a VirtualSize of
2944x2208 is defined for a 1280x1024 resolution screen. Additionally, I set
DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_LOCALARGS="-dpi 96" or I get unreasonably large fonts (see
bug #). That is fine.

If I switch now with `xrandr -s 1024x768`, I get 1024. Fine too. If however, I
switch back using `xrandr -s 2944x2208`, the DPI value is reset, as evidenced
by running `xdpyinfo | grep dots`. In xrandr's manpage, I notice that --fbmm
(option right above --dpi) talks about resetting the reported physical size
values by default. Passing neither --fbmm <xvalue>x<yvalue> nor --dpi 96 has an
effect however.
