Right, I *finally* got it to work. My Monitor section now looks like

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Philips 17B"
        Option          "DPMS"
        HorizSync       30-66
        VertRefresh     50-160
        Option          "DPMS"
        Modeline "1152x864_17B"    95.74   1152 1160 1376 1480    864 864  874 886
        Option "PreferredMode" "1152x864_17B"

I had to define the mode 1152x864_17B explicitly, using just 1152x864
made the X server just ignore the line. Or rather: not ignore it cause
it turned up in the log file, but the driver used 1280x768 anyway.
Still a bug in my book, but I found a workaround.
