KDE4 forgets screen resolution after log out

Dear Users,

I am using Fedora 12 with KDE4 and when I logged in to my KDE desktop for the first time, the screen resolution was 2048x1536, which was unusable for me. Therefore I set the screen resolution to 1280x1024 through the System Settings > Display in KDE4. However, whenever I log out and back in, the resolution falls back to 2048x1536. When I go to System Settings > Display to set it right, as soon as I click the Display button in System Settings, before changing any resolution, the screen falls back to the 1280x1024 setting. I could not figure out what is wrong. Can you help me?

Find the file xorg.conf. Probably it is in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I am not familiar with FC.

Check if the various mode are specified. The line should look something like:

Modes      "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600"
Delete the modes you don't want.

That won't work either, some thing in Fedora is changing the Modes settings.
I have had this happen on a number of boxes using mainly the Nvidia Adapters.
