i re-ran sax2. While the text in the menus is too small to read w/o
*very* careful attention, i found that sax had correctly determined the
monitor, but incorrectly set the size - it was set to 42" instead of
32. Knocking it down to 32" gives me a more acceptable, but still

xdpyinfo | grep resolution
resolution: 58x70 dots per inch
