With this option the server hangs with a black screen. Seems that the radeon
driver's check of the monitor's internals fails while the server's check
doesn't (see attachment).

I don't understand the behavior so or so. The overview you linked to shows that
the "Modes" argument is still valid and dominant. The argument in the monitor's
section only chooses a preferred mode of the modes listed with the "Modes"
argument. In both cases, this was 1600x1200. However, the driver fell back to
800x600, which wasn't set at all. Shouldn't the server turn down in this case?
I'd understand this choice if the driver found higher modes but the refresh
rate was too slow. However, the refresh rate for 1280x1024 is the same.
