I have jumped most of those hoops, too.

I used to use gdm, but then it stopped having the server arguments option 
(and kdm got fixed), I discovered gnome's setting, but that doesn't help me, 
as a die-hard kde user, I used to have an nvidia card and rejoiced in the 
ability to nail my monitor's native resolution down fast, but now I use 
Intel and there is no longer an xorg.conf (I'm glad about that, and the 
dimensions one could set in xorg.conf never worked right anyway)...

I believe the font resolution you mention in kde's systemsettings is only 
for fonts (96 or 120), while the setting in kdmrc is for all displayed 
information.

I, too, wish that either X could detect a monitor's native resolution 
correctly automatically, or that one could easily set it system-wide.
