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

Ok, Looking through the Xorg.0.log file, here are some messages that are apparently related to this issue:

(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NoLogo" "false"

(II) do I need RAC?  No, I don't.
(II) resource ranges after preInit:
        [0] -1  0       0xffffffff - 0xffffffff (0x1) MX[b]
        [1] -1  0       0x000f0000 - 0x000fffff (0x10000) MX[b]
        [2] -1  0       0x000c0000 - 0x000effff (0x30000) MX[b]
        [3] -1  0       0x00000000 - 0x0009ffff (0xa0000) MX[b]
        [4] -1  0       0x0000ffff - 0x0000ffff (0x1) IX[b]
        [5] -1  0       0x00000000 - 0x00000000 (0x1) IX[b]
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1920x1080_24+0+0"
So, up to there, everything seems fine, and it seems to be ok w/ 1920x1080.

Then there's a bunch of info about enabling extensions and loading modules, then at the very end, I see:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1920x1080_24+0+0"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "DFP-0:1920x1080@1920x1080+0+0"
And then my screen comes up in 1024x768! There's no mention of 1024x768 until the very end!

Also, I'm attaching the complete Xorg.0.log file.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
