Thanks Amy, I wasn't, but this did get me to look at my xorg.conf again,
which had magically changed.
This isn't terribly satisfying, but I am excited I got the resolution
fixed. After various iterations of editing xorg.conf, restarting x, and
using xrandr, suddenly my xorg.conf included this subsection under
I added the resolution that my monitor wanted (1280x1024) to the config
(leaving in the 1920x1440), logged out of X, and suddenly I was at the
correct resolution without having to do anything else. Very strange,
because before the conf didn't have a subsection, and when I had tried
to add it in before, X wouldn't start and complained about my config file.
