I just booted the Ubuntu 8.10 live image on the same (Rawhide) kvm
install and it's using 1024x768 by default, which is much more pleasant:

   (--) CIRRUS(0): Virtual size is 1024x768 (pitch 1024)
   (**) CIRRUS(0): *Default mode "1024x768": 78.8 MHz, 60.0 kHz, 75.0 Hz
   (II) CIRRUS(0): Modeline "1024x768"x75.0   78.75  1024 1040 1136 1312  768 769 772 800 +hsync +vsync (60.0 kHz)

Perhaps there's a patch we can pull?
