Me, too. But for some odd reason, I guess X didn't like 1024, and instead always used 800..
or maybe it was finding one of the several config files I found laying about the place.
The only reason I found out, is because I added a little screen resolution function in one of my programs, that printf the 
res. I thought there was something odd about the extra large icons and fonts. DOH
So, I installed XFree86 v4, and all is back to normalicy.
