All those I have tried have worked fine at this resolution.  Which
particular applications are you referring to?

I've tried; konqueror, galeon, gpredict, xclock, firefox, emacs, xterm,
inkscape, gimp, abiword, openoffice, wesnoth, and xastir.  I'm probably
not using an application you're using.  Which is it?  Perhaps there is a
design problem in the application.  Perhaps the application requires a
display bandwidth that exceeds what is available.
