Maximum Screen Size for intel driver

I'm running into this intel driver limit on a i945GM card:

xrandr: screen cannot be larger than 1280x1824 (desired size 1920x1824)

I've recompiled from source from
git:// but it seems
least the master branch still has this problem. Are there plans to work
this problem? Is there a branch containing fixes for it?

I know it's possible because in Windows this card happily drives this
at 1920x1200 for a total desktop size of 3200x1200.
