I found the work around restarting the VM made the changes take effect.
I dont know if this is something that only occurs with VMware. I would
have expected Ubuntu to prompt if a reboot was needed. Now I just need
to find the best resolution setting so that I can now switch to full
screen mode without VMware complaining.
