Sounds like you've set gnome to change the resolution somehow.  I don't use 
GNOME much these days, but check for settings in gnome's control panel 
(desktop, perhaps), and (most likely) look for a resolution changing applet 
(perhaps called randr or something like that).  If that fails, run the gnome 
session editor, and delete any background tasks that look suspicious,  If all 
else fails, logout, delete your .gnome directory, and setup gnome again on 
next login :)
