Default Re: 9629 causing grainy display in VMWare

Since I never got any response the first time around I started playing with settings I found in other posts like disabling EDID and Option "ModeValidation" "NoDFPNativeResolutionCheck". None of these things resolved the problem. The problem also occurs with the 9631 driver. I did however notice that with the 9xxx drivers I get the following lines in xorg.0.log when I switch in and out of a virtual machine in vmware:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768_87i" #vmware loaded
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768" #back to normal x-windows
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768_87i" #vmware loaded
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768" #back to normal x-windows

When I load the 8776 driver and do the exact same thing I get no refresh rate changes like this.
