Which VGA driver are you using?
Whatever nvidia-kernel-dkms left me with.  Is there an easy way to tell
which driver is active?
You can look at Xorg logs, for instance:

grep -i nvidia /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Or you can ask lspci:

lspci -v | grep nvidia

Nvidia closed driver provides "nvidia-settings" app to manage the
basics of the card.
Running this now gives me a dialog box which tells me I am not using the
NVIDIA X driver and that I should run nvidia-xconfig.  This tells me I
need to fix xorg.conf which I will do later today.
Oops. That can be cause of the wrong resolution :-?

Removing xserver-xorg-video-nouveau and today's upgrade of xserver-xorg-core to 2: has fixed my monitor!!! xorg.conf is not present.
