Yeah...turns out to be an oldish mesa problem that I've never run across
or at least never noticed.  I get the same thing with 6.6.3 drivers, but
at least I can do better than 310x230 or whatever it was reporting.  I
think it was actually 640x480, but some weird 310 value is what the log
showed, xterms looked huge!  Anyway, I've dropped back to ati-6.6.3 and
upto xorg-server- + a few patches and am running happily at
1280x1024.  I can't get it into 1600, but I don't use it anyway, so I
haven't investigated yet.
