Most odd indeed.

Again, the "Problem with screen resolution in F8" thread seems to have 
identified the issue. running xrandr, I seem to have a ghost monitor 
attached with a resolution of 1360X768 (compared to my normal 1440x900).

Appears to be an ATI driver issue.  Hopefully a fix is in the works.
