I solve this irritating problem on my 800x600 display by setting the virtual
display to 1024x768 in my XF86Config file:
Virtual 1024 768
You can make it bigger than this, I think, but 1024x768 is just about
right for my purposes. Works great under Blackbox and WindowMaker,
the only two window managers I ever use.
