X Screensize Mystery

I installed the system-config-display and duly set up
for a Viewsonic 21. This CRT has a 1993 date on it
which likely predates VGA probing.
After setting the display size, root's gnome desktop
failed to appear. So I got rid of the xorg.conf file,
and the desktop came back on the next startx
(or was it xinit?).
Strangely enough, the preferences-display now
has a 1024x768 option, which is the default now.
During this messing around yum update repeatedly
wedged on testing transaction. An ls also wedged.
Both had to be killed with -9.
Another reboot and Linux felt much better.
Yum update and ls no longer wedge themselves.
