SaX2 indicates that my display resolution is set to 1920x1200, which is
what the monitor thinks it's displaying. I took a look at the X.org
configuration files, and there are two of them that seem to be updated
every time i fiddle around with stuff in SaX2. One is
"/etc/X11/xorg.conf", the other is "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.saxsave". The only
major differences between the two are in the "Modes" and "Screen"
sections. "xorg.conf.saxsave" has had all the modelines and screen
settings with resolutions higher than 1680x1050 deleted. I presume X11 is
use "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.saxsave" to set the desktop resolution, would it
be OK to overwrite it with a copy of the other one?
