If these are funny screen sizes, then I've probably missed something.
My reading of the code was that it just queries the X server for the
horizontal and vertical display size and then divides one into the other
to get the aspect ratio. All of the above should give the magic number
Based on the fact that xdpyinfo didn't report the screen size to be
the values I was putting into xorg.conf, I'm assuming there is some
rounding happening inside the X server and those rounded values are what
myth is getting back and using to calculate the display aspect.
