Which kernel?
Which gfxchip?
Which video driver version?
Are you providing any video instruction via cmdline (vga=, video=, gfxmode=)?

> I use

>  /usr/bin/xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 800x600 --panning 1536x1024

When? As server initializes? After WM loads? Which WM?

Why 3:2? Virtually every other wider than tall aspect ratio anyone else
employs is 21:9, 16:9, 8:5, 4:3 or 5:4?

What modes does your video BIOS support?
What modes does your display support?
What is your display's native mode?

Maybe using a ratio ever before encountered would produce an expected result?
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
