I had similar - on start-up KDE used settings for a 17" monitor whereas I've
only got 15". Had to add a monitor specific modeline to xorg.conf to
correct things. Sometimes it would display at 75dpi instead of 92 making
the fonts look big even tho they were set correctly, so I added DisplaySize
to xorg as well!
