It sounds like you need to play with the modelines yourself, instead
of taking the first one offered by XFree.
Iirc, its been awhile, the startup logs
(/var/log/XFree86.<display>.log) should have a list of
modelines... pick a valid one for the resolution you want which is not
marked as the default and enter it into /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. If
there is nothing there then you may need to craft one yourself...
...good luck, I've always been real lucky and managed to find one
without having to figure out how to do that.
