VESA has been panning all along with my VGA monitors.

I beg to differ.  KP+ & KP- do work with the VESA driver on my VGA monitors, and this server.  It's one of my main reasons for using VESA--a key press is so much faster and easier than xrandr.  My xorg.conf with this system specifies VESA still, and it resizes with the keypad now.
