Default help with Gnome video settings

Newbie question -
just starting to tinker with Ubuntu.
I'm having trouble
getting Gnome screen/graphics settings to "stay". I bring up the Screen and
Graphics Preference panel, make my changes, created and saved a "location", and
hit ok. After that I get a "logoff all users to take effect" window, so I log
off. I log back in and the system comes up the same as before, in a low graphics
mode, with the default settings. If I select my "location" in the Preference
panel they're there, but of course the system isn't using those settings. If I
select them and hit ok, the same chain of events repeats, with no changes, and
no changes to the graphics.
Anyone got any ideas
that may help me out?
Thanks for your
