    nvidia driver chooses wrong native resolution

    I have a GeForce 6600 on an x86_64 Mandriva Linux box, and a Hyundai 32" monitor.
    The native resolution is 1360x768. The open-source nv driver works fine at this resolution (see attached xorg.conf). However, the nvidia driver ignores my modelines and resolution lines, and defaults to 1280x1024, which is not only wrong, but the wrong aspect ratio, so everything is stretched. 1360x768 is listed in the EDID, so I'm not sure why it's ignoring it. See attached log. I've also tried deleting the vert/horiz lines, the modelines, and the resolution lines allowing everything to go automatic, with the same result.

    This is with 100.14.09 and 9755 builds. Something makes me thing it used to work on an older distro with 8774, but I don't have it anymore.

    Any help would be appreciated.
