[PC-BSD Testing] Display tool entry causes spontaneous screen resize

Does anyone else have this problem?

A spontaneous re-size of the screen resolution to 1024x768 occurred when I
selected System Settings --> Display.

I could not undo the change by attempting to use the "Size" tool, even
though the screen sizes were on the list.  No matter what, the size remained
at 1024x768.  However, I could reset the display with %nvidia-settings.

I re-ran the sequence (Display / nvidia-settings) several times.  The
behavior was 100% repeatable.
