This has come up on another list:

"Xorg forces DPI 96 irrespective of the correct DPI detected

OK, thanks for the info. However, it turns out that my installation of
the nvidia drivers was not as succeful as I tought. After reboot my laptop
refuses to start X (hangs during startup). After removing the nvidia
drivers and returning to nouveau things work again. This is on

I would prefer to have the nvidia drivers working so any suiggestions for
a workaround will be greatly appreciated.
