Thanks, Mark, but the mode line was there.  Apparently there are two
problems (I finally got a clue in the xorg log file):

1.  The R913J (not R943J) digital mode seems not to be compatible with
the Nvidia drivers for some reason.

2.  I was using startx to test as I was used to doing in the old days.
 The log file mentioned lost contact with gdm so I entered "gdm"
instead of "startx" and got the desired resolution!

Now I have another problem: somehow in my putzing around the monitor
has taken on a blue hue both in the startup vga mode and the full-up
Nvidia X mode.  Any ideas about that?

I haven't done a hard reboot yet and hope that clears it up--but I'm
putting that off until tomorrow morning.
