Intel G45 ModeLines

I am playing with an Intel G45FC Motherboard with a HDMI connected Samsung HDTV.
I am using Fedora 10 as the base with the latest DRM/X11 driver from the
Xorg GIT repository. In general this appears to be working.

However, the TV's EDID is not correct in some details and so I wish to override
some things in the "Monitor section of the xorg.conf file. However they do not 
seem to work.

If I add: "DisplaySize	890 500" this is ignored.

If I add: "ModeLine "1920x1080_50" 148.50 1920 2448 2492 2640 1080 1084 1089 
1125 +HSync +VSync" with a "Modes "1920x1080_50" " line in the "Screen" section
this seems to be ignored.

Is there any way to get the Intel driver to use a user provided ModeLine ?
