 Ever heard of iteconfig? This nifty programm changes the size and
 the colors of the console _online_. No need to compile your own
 kernel or to use binpatch! This way it is easy to change the
 comsole size from 640x480 (NTSC/PAL) to 1024x1024 for A2024.

 The new xbsdcc X servers don't read the size of the console and open
 a hard-coded screen, as you remarked already. You need to patch the
 server. Get a binary editor (heck, even the vi does it) and look
 for the (binary) value 640 (0x280 ?) and change it into 1024.
