This is material for another bug report.

What kind of DP->DVI adapters are you using?  Make sure they are active
adapters that support dual link since your monitors require dual-link DVI and
passive DP->DVI adapters only support single link.  Also, most active adapters
also only support single link DVI; you need to make sure you specifically got
dual-link capable active adapters.  If they are active adapters, make sure they
are properly powered.  You might also want to try alternate adapters as a lot
of cheap ones don't work very well.
