Yeah anaconda itself doesn't do high res, but it probably is not that anaconda
guessed low for your installed resolution but that X incorrectly responded to
the monitor after DDC probing, so look in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log and file a
bug on what is happening. Your /etc/X11/xorg.conf should not have resolutions
specified by default and your monitor should be getting put into a standard
(nice) native resolution rather than getting stretched.

File bug, include xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log after X starts and 'ignores' these

Yes because its configured for your user's environment with randr, every user
can login differently. If you want global configuration (for GDM) you've got to
do that in xorg.conf.

This will be logged so you can 'grep avc /var/log/messages', but they can be
better seen if you're running setroubleshootd (should be on default) by running
selinux troubleshooter in the applications menu next time you login.
