There's a very good reason for this.  When X is restarted, 
xorg.conf is reproduced by ?? (in Ubuntu Dapper using KDE) so all 
the editings we tried are removed.  :-(
The screen resolution app in KDE Control Centre does not respond 
to a setting of 1600x1200.   :-(

In Dapper/KDE as I have it now, the KDE applicatins menu 
contains "Debian" wherein nice "rescue" Gnome goodies reside.  
The Gnome screen resolution app DOES work.  Yeah!  :-)

So I'm running at 1600x1200 as I write - no thanks to Ubuntu or 
Xorg!  I doubt that this setting will 'stick' through a restart 
or reboot, but at least I can call 
on  /usr/bin/gnome-control-center to get the resolution I want.

Thanks for all the advice.  I'd love to know what is causing it to 
be rejected.   BTW Edgy is worse, but that's a story for the 
Ubuntu list.
