After an emerge update, my X Windows resolution is initially very small (huge and grainy details). I use Xfce desktop and start it from the command line with 'startx'. I save the session settings and restart X Windows, but still the same tiny resolution at startup of the GUI (separate from booting to command line), so I tried moving (renaming) the .cache/sessions directory, which comes in handy if Xfce gets in a bad state. Didn't work. There has been no change to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. There has been no change to my /etc/boot.conf and /boot/grub/grub.cfg files either.
I have configured buttons on my GUI bar that I can hit to invoke xrandr and change the resolution, but I would rather just have the damn thing work and use Gnome Do without the annoyance.
Anyone have a concrete idea on what was apparently updated in the last month that has caused this change in behavior? My Web search makes it look like I am the only one with this problem recently, which does not suggest an update problem per se. Thanks.
