Doesn't it just? Xorg 7.2 does not log any such "Setting screen
physical size" message.

"1280x1024"' to the Display subsection for that depth and it worked.
(Although that weird "Setting screen physical size" you spotted is
still there. I have no idea if it has anything to do with the
problem.) Thank you so much!
But, why the %^&* should this be necessary? We hear so much about how
Xorg should autoconfigure itself these days, yet this all Just Worked
in version 7.2, but is clearly broken in 7.4. Time to hit the Xorg
list, I think.
