That is a handy keyboard shortcut, but alas, it doesn't solve my
problem.  On my setup it toggles between two ratios: too big, and way
too big.

Unfortunately, there is not a single reference in my config file
(/etc/X11/XFree86-Config) to a Virtual Screen.  In fact, I did a
recursive grep on the entire /etc/X11/ directory and didn't find one.

I'll paste some of my config file if anyone is curious/interested. 
I've been getting by by switching my driver back to "nv" (instead of
"nvidia"), but it sure would be nice to get the nvidia driver working.

Any other ideas?  Anyone else ever run into this problem?
