That dialog is a wizard, so you must go all the way to the end and Finish it
in order for the changes to take effect.  Did you do this?

Also, you must adjust the resolution using the arrow keys, not by entering
numbers directly.  I thought we fixed it to disallow direct entry for this
reason, but I can't check right now.

This is a known (minor) bug, caused by a limitation in php itself.  Its
integer data type is 32 bits signed, so sizes larger than 2^31 bits (about
2G) will not be reported correctly.
