Is that a bug in the driver or is my monitor sending bogus

According the manual it supports 1600x1200 at 80Hz, but I have never
pushed it that far. (I'm squinting enough as it is. :-) It's an
Iiyama Vision Master 450.
Another thing: after fixing things by adding the Modes lines there was
a fonts problem: all text in the Icewm manus and dialogs, and also GTK
and Qt widgets (but *not* FLTK widgets) was rendered as a minute
scribble. It looked as though everything was rendered in 2-3 pixel
type! The fix was to uncomment the line "#DisplaySize 360 270 # mm"
in the configuration. I think that forces the server to calculate the
DPI from the real display size.
Are any of these problems to do with my card not being recognised, or
is that a separate issue?
Thanks for your help.
