Default 7600GS at 2560x1600

dear nvidia experts:

gentoo linux, fully updated, new HP LP3065 30" monitor, MSI NX7600 GS-T2D256EH Geforce 7600GS card (which prominently advertises dual-dvi dual-link).

alas, no matter what I try in xorg.conf, I cannot get it to display at 2560x1600. It always falls back to 1280x800 (which thankfully the HP supports). I tried 'Option "ModeValidation" "NoMaxPClkCheck', but then my screen becomes a veritable piece of art, albeit a non-sensible one.

I looked at the enclosed nvidia bug report (great debug utility!), and I wonder why I am getting "single-link" rather than "dual-link" in grepping for link.

Oh, and yes, I was smart enough to use a dual-link cable, and to reboot my computer. (And no, it was not one of my finest moments when I first just used my old dvi cable.)

Any help would be appreciated.
