aplattner said:RandR 1.2 gives complete control of the display configuration, including choosing the actual mode timings to send to the display and how the desktop should be scaled to that resolution, to the X client applications (i.e. Wine in this case). When an application chooses to use RandR 1.2 requests rather than RandR 1.1 requests, it is assuming control of that configuration and needs to handle all of the options users might want to configure, including scaling.
CME said:Wine actually disabled RandR 1.2/1.3 because of this.
+ /* Recent (304.64, possibly earlier) versions of the nvidia driver only
+ * report a DFP's native mode through RandR 1.2 / 1.3. Standard DMT modes
+ * are only listed through RandR 1.0 / 1.1. This is completely useless,
+ * but NVIDIA considers this a feature, so it's unlikely to change. The
+ * best we can do is to fall back to RandR 1.0 and encourage users to
+ * consider more cooperative driver vendors when we detect such a
+ * configuration. */
