[CentOS] X/Display resolution configuration

Login as normal via the linux login screen. The display is 1280x1024. I
use the system config to change the display to 1600x900. All works
until I logout. The next time I log in, the display has reverted to
1280X1024. It's as if, when I change the display to the higher value,
it's not being retained---only for the duration of that session.
