In trying to track down a similar problem with a 915G (Dell GX280) driving a
Dell 1703FP, it seems that it doesn't like the "Depth 24" line.  Sticking in a
Depth of 16 works (32 doesn't, but that may be a video RAM limitation).

With Depth 24, this thing was convinced it was running at 1600x1200.  With Depth
16, it correctly ends up at 1280x1024.
