Description of problem:
The screen resolution is not displaying all of the options available.  If I go
under System -> Administration -> Display I may select a resolution of 1600x
1200.  If I then go under System -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution I only see
options for 1024x768 800x600 600x480.

This occurs even if I reset XWindows or reboot the machine.  To troubleshoot, I
manually edited /etx/X11/xorg.conf and removed all screen resolutions except
1600x1200.  I then entered init 3 (text mode) then back to init 5 to reset
xwindows.  I believe the login screen is 1600x1200, but when I login with the
user account, under preferences->Screen Resolution I now see an option for
1280x1024, but not 1600x1200.

The software has correctly detected my graphics card as a GForce 6600 and my
monitor as a ViewSonic 17PS.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora Core 5

Bug is misfiled against incorrect component (XFree86 does not exist in
Fedora Core 5, and the config tool is also not part of X)

Reassigning to gnome-applets for gui RandR resolution tool (not part of
