And for posterity, another way to handle this, for those who don't have
a rescue disk handy:

Swap over to a text console (e.g. press CTRL ALT F1), log in as root,
and run "system-config-display --reconfig".  Then go back to your GUI
screen (e.g. press CTRL ALT F7), restart the X server (e.g. the hotkey
for that is usually CTRL ALT BACKSPACE), and you'll get the X server
running in whatever mode you just configured.

That lets you see what you're doing, straight away.  And allows you to
make multiple changes, if you have to, without a lot of rebooting.

Just went through that malarkey over the last few days, with the new way
of configuring X which automatically tries to configure itself and
ignore you settings - continually getting it wrong.
