so it looks even better now ...
when i compile Xsmi using Vesa and not Xfbdev
then i can start without -dumb and i get a kinda speedy window movement....

but still when i turn the screen i get the dimensions messed up and 
height does not become 1024 and widht not 768 ...
they stay at the old stuff ... and fe the KDE-Tasbar is in the 2/3 of 
the screen...

should nt we need a dimension like 768x1024 which in the same the randr 
is used to switch
if we did rotation ?

where could i hack in such a mode and make xrandr aware of that ?
