OK, now it *finally* worked and I'm a very happy camper
The rez on my secondary display is now not just (almost) twice as high, but it also fits the primary display's rez to a T (so I can move windows back & forth w/l losing sight of 'em).

But can you pleaaaase (with a big cheese) explain to me what O just did?
What are the meanings of all those many, many options I've now put into my X11 config file?
