The refresh used to come from the driver. Now the server takes the
refresh provided by the driver and computes a dot clock to construct a
mode line. Then it takes those mode lines and back-computes the refresh
value when a 1.0 client requests the old information.

At least the latter part of this process works as 1.0 clients get valid
information from a new server...

I'll bet something is messed up in RROldModeAdd.
