I'd eliminate all of the settings save the DPMS one from this section;
they should all be correctly autodetected at this point.

Ah, there's the trouble -- the current code won't let you use VGA sizes
beyond the native panel size. We're working on fixing it by new RandR
stuff, but it's not done yet. You can manually disable the LVDS port
with configuration changes if you like; that should solve this issue,
with the side-effect of shutting off the internal LCD screen.

I'm hoping to demonstrate new RandR functionality during DDC in 10 days;
we'll see how far we get...
