solaris 10 gdm config question

If the version of gnome on Solaris is close to what's on current 
Linux distributions, and not a really old version, then there are 
two places in the menus for setting the display resolution: 

* the per-user display preference:
    System -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution

* the system-wide display settings:
    System -> Administration -> Display

The system-wide setting sets the display's maximum resolution, 
and the per-user setting allows users to choose a lower 
resolution if they prefer. 

Gdm presumably uses the system-wide setting.
