Monitor detection failure and video display

I'm having a google failure.

I have a kiosk machine that displays a web page to a large monitor.

Everything works fine, unless the monitor is not powered on when the kiosk boots.

In that case, there is no video signal (not even the text console).  I can't wake it up with mouse or keyboard activity, and once it's in production it won't have a mouse or keyboard anyway.

This wasn't a problem with Lenny, but it is with Squeeze so I am guessing it has to do with the new video modes in the newer kernels.

How do I tell the system to ALWAYS push video out the VGA port, preferably at 1920x1080, even if it thinks there is no display connected to the port?
