It should start at 450x400 by default, and you should be able to
override this by setting the environment variables XDRIVER_WIDTH and

However, the WM always gets the last say, so it's possible that
something in either the WM's configuration or its hardcoded behaviour
will override this.

2. Check the WM's configuration file.
3. Try a different WM.
4. Check for an updated version of your preferred WM.
5. Tell me that 1, 2 and 4 were unsuccessful and that 3 isn't an
option, and I'll try to find a workaround.
