But a modern (as in the last year or so) Xorg doesn't set or expect
resolutions in xorg.conf. I know it *can* still be done but it's
rather going against the intent of current versions of Xorg. It
certainly shouldn't be necessary unless something has gone wrong.

Yes, so where has it gone and how do I get it back? :-)
In my xfce when I right click on the background (or look in the
Applications menu on the panel) I do have Settings but there is no
Display entry there. What provides it, i.e. what package in Ubuntu
provides it, maybe something has gong awry in various upgrades and
it's got lost in the wash.
What program gets run when you click on menu->settings->display?
