Under Gnome (etc.) where is a user's preferred screen resolution saved?

I don't mean xorg.conf - that's global - I mean where is the setting an individual user makes with the System>Preferences>Display dialog stored? I would presume in a 'dot' ('hidden') file or directory in the users home directory.

This may vary by distro - I'm interested in Ubuntu in particular.


  It's completely normal that you lose data on "Windows" platforms.
  That's why you have a Linux/BSD/UNIX server for backups.
