I tried that this morning - nothing seems to be relevant. I tried
going form "native" to "full screen" but that just widened the
1280x1024 image to fill the screen, which is NOT what I want.

This is my primary workstation - no extra connections at all. My
machines are so spread out that a kvm wouldn't work for me anyway, and
I'd rather keep mine separate for other reasons.

I can do that, but since it works up to the login in wide screen mode,
I'm fairly certain that it is the gdm (GNOME).
