Thanks for the idea, but I just discovered the real cause of my problem.
I'm a longtime KDE user, so in my new F9 I just logged into my account
as always, and of course it has all the setup for KDE 3.5. Removing a
few lines from .kde/share/config/startupconfig (the ones to do with
randr) basically fixed the aspect ratio problem.

I still have the Settings->Display problem but that may also be related
to KDE 3.5. I set up a fresh test account and it doesn't have this

I'll keep poking ...
