Horizontal timing out of range (was Re: Bug in Xgalaga?)

[added the list back to the cc's of this because it's now a general
question about Xfree86, rather than a specific question about your

Oops - seems I misremembered the error message. This is what it actually

(WW) SAVAGE(0): Mode "1600x1200" deleted (horizontal timing out of

Is that the same problem, or a different one?

This is the XF86Config-4 version of my Monitor section. I just checked
and the old XF86Config from v3 was identical except for a lot of
comments and different identifier strings.

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Monitor Model"
        HorizSync    30-117
        VertRefresh  50-160
        Option       "DPMS"
        Modeline "1600x1200"  162   1600 1664 1856 2160  1200 1201 1204
1250 +HSync +VSync

(minus the obvious wordwrapping of the modeline done by my mail client)

(Actually, my *current* Xf86-4 has vertrefresh 50-70 for other reasons,
but this doesn't change the error message for the 1600x1200 modeline)

Thanks again for your help!
