ctrl-alt-plus/minus switching resolution doesn't work anymore

I recently upgraded to FC6 and installed the NVidia (9626, then 9629) drivers from Livna. in the past, the 7xxx and 8xxx drivers with FC4/5 have always allowed me to change resolutions with ctrl-alt-plus/minus on the keypad, but it seems broken now. I'm not sure whether it's FC6 or the driver that broke it, but it's pretty annoying because I have two monitors and I can't play Unreal Tournament without turning off one of them. In the past, a ctrl-alt-minus would have done it. Here are the relevant lines from xorg.conf:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "nvidia0"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "BackingStore" "true"
    Option      "TwinView"
    Option      "Metamodes" "1280x1024, 1280x1024; 1280x1024, NULL; NULL, 1280x1024"
    Option      "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
    BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier   "DoubleMonitor"
    VendorName   "NvTwinViewMonitor"
    ModelName    "NvTwinViewMonitor1"
    DisplaySize  720    570
    Option      "dpms"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device     "nvidia0"
    Monitor    "DoubleMonitor"
    DefaultDepth     24
    SubSection "Display"
        Depth     24
        Modes    "2560x1024" "1280x1024"
I've tried fiddling with all sorts of options from the Nvidia readme, but I still can't get it to work.

Has anybody else had this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
