If you're trying to connect to an existing session, then XRandR is probably 
the best solution (either using krandrtray or xrandr from the command-line). 
I'm not sure how well this works for a VNC connection.

Another option is to run a separate VNC session at your desired resolution, 
either using vncserver as required or using (x)inetd to start VNC.
