That uses xvidmode to switch resolutions (and really just changes the amount 
you can view, the desktop size stays the same, try moving the mouse to the 
edges of the screen). xrandr is a different way of switching resolutions, 
which actually changes the resolution on the fly, try using 'krandrtray' or 
'xrandr' to use xrandr instead.

You should see the following in your Xorg.0.log file, if xrandr is enabled:
(==) RandR enabled
(II) Initializing built-in extension RANDR
