I had an identical problem at work yesterday with a brand new Samsung
2243BW 22" LCD monitor (1680x1050), using CentOS 5.1.
No matter what combination of things I tried at the two locations above,
or in xorg.conf, I couldn't get the resolution right, the screen was
obviously "stretched" horizontally and the fonts fuzzy.
Since I mostly write code in a console, I eventually just replaced the
monitor with the original and got back to work :-)
