That's probably because you said yes to "virtual desktops" or whatever it's called when you created your XF86Config (if you did it through xf86config). This means, I believe, that desktop space is always as big as your maximum resolution, and selecting lower resolutions will result in kind of a zoom effect. Could be wrong
but but check it out - if this is the case, just disable it.
