Display resolution gripe

Since I seem to be grousing about MacOSX glitches at the moment let me add another: Why is it that MacOSX keeps intermittently choosing the wrong resolution for my 2nd display, no matter how many times I correct it?

I have a ViewSonic VE702m 17" LCD monitor connected to my PowerBook and the PowerBook knows this (the Displays System Preference correctly identify the monitor model). It shows me all the right resolutions and yet, about every 5th or 6th time I hook it up it chooses 1024x768 instead of the native 1280x1024 resolution.

It's the work of a few moments to correct it but it bugs me a little more each time it happens.
