Gnome and Kde both have nothing to say about the resolution, that is
all xfree86s doing. You can run "X" on the console to get a bare X
display and you will see the stipple pattern in 800x600 there too.
The problem must be in your XF86config and most likely your
horizontal/vertical limits are such that only the 800x600 mode remains
valid (or no mode in which case X choose one itself).
Or you only selected 800x600 as resolution in the config. :)
Anyways, read the xfree86 log carefully.
