The basic problem is that Myth is using the DisplaySize X config item
for the screen's aspect ratio whilst X wants to use it to get the DPI.

I think there was a rumbling of using something internal to Myth for the screen's aspect ratio last time I asked about this. Have a look through the archives and you might see something.
