Because I thought that XFree86 provided me with 1600x1050 and not
1400x1050 and I wanted that under Xorg too...

Right, mixed up this with the 1400x1050 on the RADEON(1) devices...

Right, but I could swear that the CRT showed 1600x1050 under XFree86,
though the Sarge-Log seems to say something different. Anyway I can live
with 1400x1050 or maybe 1600x1050 (virtually).

I don' really aggree that this is a configuration issue, as the
behaviour of Xorg is certainly different from that of XFree86, but as
I'm not sure wether XFree86 did support 1600x1050 on that monitor and I
can live with the current solution I'm closing this bug.

Thanks for your time and support on this.
