I'll do that.

So get-edid manages to fetch the EDID data but the server seems to

It works by explicitly putting the get-edit generated monitor section in the
config file, listing a lot more modes, including the desired 1280x1024 at 85 Hz
(though a copule of unsupported modes are listed as well). It also only
works that way with the xorg server from git.

Monitor is "Samsung SyncMaster 900NF"  from march 2001.

Please tell if I can help in any way to make the server get the EDID data.
