I have laptop, which I thought is 1280x800;
in xorg.conf I have 1280x800
kde starts in 1440x900
when I launch wine and it shut downs with incorrect resolution, like 
800x600 - I launch this display manager and *magic*, it makes me 1440-900.

So, probably your monitor really thinks that it has 1024x768 :)
