Default Wrong screen resolution, font size etc.

Good morning Gentlemen,

I have recently installed my new desktop pc with 7.0.

Xorg was configured easily with my Radeon 9000 although I read there are often problems with those cards. Anyway, the radeon driver worked right out of the box with graphics acceleration and everything.

BUT, the X server starts with a 1024x768 resolution, no matter what I do. There is no mod-line with this resolution, no extra xorg.conf file somewhere, it just uses this resolution and I have no idea why. Odd, I can resize the screen to 1280x1024 with xrandr without any problems! Fluxbox then messes up the screen and needs to be restarted. That's when all of the fonts in the application windows become big like a 24 font in an office-document.

I think this has all got to do with the first resolution problem, am I right? Where could I start debugging this error?
