Default Re: X won't start w/ best available resolution...

Bit more progress today....

I was looking at nvidia-settings and it's command line options, and found that I can do this:
mjb@jupiter:~$ nvidia-settings -q FlatpanelNativeResolution

Attribute 'FlatpanelNativeResolution' (jupiter:0.0; display device: DFP-0):
1920,1080.
'FlatpanelNativeResolution' is a packed integer attribute.
'FlatpanelNativeResolution' is a read-only attribute.
'FlatpanelNativeResolution' is display device specific.
'FlatpanelNativeResolution' can use the following target types: X Screen,
GPU.

mjb@jupiter:~$ nvidia-settings -q FlatpanelBestFitResolution

Attribute 'FlatpanelBestFitResolution' (jupiter:0.0; display device: DFP-0):
1024,768.
'FlatpanelBestFitResolution' is a packed integer attribute.
'FlatpanelBestFitResolution' is a read-only attribute.
'FlatpanelBestFitResolution' is display device specific.
'FlatpanelBestFitResolution' can use the following target types: X Screen,
GPU.

So, it's returning 1920x1080 for Native Resolution, but only 1024x768 for Best Fit Resolution.

Is this an EDID error? Something else? Any ideas?

AdvThanksance,
