I've seen log outputs in cm or mm before. It should be available from the dpms
info, but I think you can also force it in the config file. The more
accurate information the X server has, the better display quality you should
get w/regards to correct font sizing. If your dpms is wrong/buggy, then
forcing it would be the best option IMO. (realize, that your monitor's dpi
should change with your resolution setting)
A 19" monitor at 1900 pixels should be around 125 dpi in the X direction.
A 17" monitor at 1900 pixels should be around 139.
147 does seem a bit high--it'd be great to have a monitor with that kind of
