Default Re: Is this a bug? GPU scaling option results in a different refresh

It's enabled by default. You can disable it in xorg.conf by setting an option:
   Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Native"
It's enabled by default because most flat panels have really poor scaling hardware and most people prefer the GPU's scaling.
