using CELL monitor

To be able to create high resolution (2000 x 2666) PostScript output to a 
slidewriter, I uncommented the lines pertaining to the CELL monitor in 
the monitorcap file and inserted CELL_HEIGHT and CELL_WIDTH values into 
my .grassrc file. I then started the CELL monitor, set the region to 
contain a very high number of cells, and issued display commands for 
several map layers. Stopping the CELL monitor, I expected the newly 
created raster map layer D_cell to have a 2000 x 2666 size, but it 
didn't. It was only 640 x 480 cells in size. I suspect this must have 
been hardwired in the CELL driver. Can anyone confirm this and supply a 
method of changing these values?
