OK did it all, driver is now intel, sync rates commented out and all
sub-sections display removed.
Xrandr now reports the proper number of videomodes available and will
switch back and forth, however I do lose the Icewm toolbar if I switch
to a different resolution, but that's no problem. The system however
boots into a lower resolution, and I have to use Xrandr in my Icewm
startup files to set 1280x960. Bit of a pain but a big improvement.
Thanks also to Andrew Sackville-West for his ideas and suggestions. I
suspect, in the words of Jack Nicholson, this is as good as it gets :)
