Default Command line access to refresh rate?

Hi all. I have a problem with beryl where one of my two screen goes
all wavy and wobbly (to use a technical term - and I don't mean any
beryl effects )

The problem seems only "cosmetic" inasmuch as I can still run
commands and such.

Interestingly, if I run nvidia-settings and reset the refresh rate the
problem goes away (until the next time it happens).

I wonder if there is a command line switch to set the refresh rate.
Under nvidia-settings you can change the refresh rate, but in the
command line refreshrate is a read-only attribute and cannot be set
with --assign function.

Does anybody know of a command line switch to set the refresh rate?

TIA

xrandr can do that (check man xrandr for the correct switches, I'm not on my hone pc atm).

I can't find any switches in xrandr that set refresh rate. Anybody know
how to do it (by command line)?

turns out there is an "undocumented" (not in the man page) switch
for setting refresh rate: xrandr -r n (where n is refresh rate, e.g. 60).

Don't know if it helps my problem since I haven't had beryl crash
since I found out ... it will happen
