I have been running DisplaySize 260 146 with no problems with Ubuntu
7.04.  I have upgraded to Ubuntu 7.10 via Mythbuntu 7.10 and for some
reason DisplaySize 260 146 is no longer working.

When I look in my Xorg.0.log file I see the line "DPI set to
(100,100); computed from -dpi X commandline option" and it appears
that my DisplaySize is being ignored.

Does anyone know how to get the DisplaySize to be recognised again?
It may be related to the NVIDIA driver now being 100.14.19/Ubuntu 7.1.
