I just noticed that the DPI does not get set properly for me unless I start X
like this:

startx -- -logverbose 5

If i just type "startx", then for some reason the DPI does not get set
properly.. X doesnt read the DisplaySize settings to generate the DPI unless I
use the "logverbose" switch. Hmm? Is this an environment setting?
