Default Re: xrandr is wrong?? physical display size wrong too..

If the DPI is not kept constant, then applications that read the DPI (such as any GTK+ application) will display text in a different (pixel) size depending on which mode the screen was in when the app was started. Users were confused by this behavior, hence the default that attempts to keep the pixels sizes the same.
