Default Loads of resolutions with incorrect refresh rates with 9626 [Fixed]

I've just got the 1.0-9626 drivers down, but when I run xrandr, I now get the following:

Code:
SZ:    Pixels          Physical       Refresh
*0   1600 x 1200   ( 383mm x 282mm )  *50   56   57   58  
 1   1280 x 1024   ( 306mm x 240mm )   51   62   63  
 2   1280 x 960    ( 306mm x 225mm )   52   64  
 3   1024 x 768    ( 245mm x 180mm )   53   67   68   69   70   71   72  
 4    800 x 600    ( 191mm x 141mm )   54   77   78   79   80   81   82   83   84  
 5    640 x 480    ( 153mm x 112mm )   55   90   91   92   93   94   95  
 6   1600 x 1024   ( 383mm x 240mm )   59  
 7   1400 x 1050   ( 335mm x 246mm )   60   61  
 8   1152 x 864    ( 276mm x 203mm )   65  
 9   1152 x 768    ( 276mm x 180mm )   66  
 10   960 x 720    ( 230mm x 169mm )   73  
 11   928 x 696    ( 222mm x 163mm )   74  
 12   896 x 672    ( 214mm x 158mm )   75  
 13   832 x 624    ( 199mm x 146mm )   76  
 14   800 x 512    ( 191mm x 120mm )   85  
 15   720 x 400    ( 172mm x  94mm )   86  
 16   640 x 512    ( 153mm x 120mm )   87   88   89  
 17   640 x 400    ( 153mm x  94mm )   96  
 18   640 x 350    ( 153mm x  82mm )   97  
 19   576 x 432    ( 138mm x 101mm )   98  
 20   576 x 384    ( 138mm x  90mm )   99  
 21   512 x 384    ( 122mm x  90mm )   100  101  102  103  104 
 22   416 x 312    (  99mm x  73mm )   105 
 23   400 x 300    (  95mm x  70mm )   106  107  108  109  110 
 24   360 x 200    (  86mm x  47mm )   111 
 25   320 x 240    (  76mm x  56mm )   112  113  114  115 
 26   320 x 200    (  76mm x  47mm )   116 
 27   320 x 175    (  76mm x  41mm )   117
With the old 8xxx drivers, I only got the resolutions I specified, and the refresh rates were right.

For instance, xrandr shows that I am running at 1600x1200@50Hz, but I'm actually running at 1600x1200@75Hz.

This is only a problem because certain games are picking up the refresh rates available from xrandr, and believe they don't support for instance 50Hz.

Any idea how to solve this?

Relevant parts of xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Monitor"

    Identifier  "My Monitor"

    HorizSync   30-95

    VertRefresh 50-152

EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "** NVIDIA (generic)                   [nv]"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "NoLogo" "1"
    Option      "CoolBits" "1"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "** NVIDIA (generic)                   [nv]"
    Monitor     "My Monitor"
    DefaultDepth 24

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes       "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes       "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

This is with a 7900 GTX.
