This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

That's not xrandr's fault.  xrandr is clearly resizing things correctly, it's the responsibility of the desktop to repaint the background.  Reassigning.
