That's not the issue (I don't think).

Because if I remove the "1280x1024", it works fine in 24-bit deep mode.

For whatever reason, it's not preferring the 1:1 match of virtual size to
actual physical resolution... 

And what was weird before is even though it said "Built-in mode 
it wouldn't switch to that mode on ctl-alt-num_plus.

Anyone else have any ideas?
