Exclamation Stereo with 980xgl -- max resolution?

I am putting together a few new Linux computers for 3-D scientific visualization. I am considering the NVIDIA Quadro4 980xgl card, but I heard from a colleague that there may be some problems with the Linux driver. His comments:

"As of a couple months ago I could not get the Linux driver for this card to
go beyond 1024x768 with a refresh rate acceptable for stereo viewing
(whereas in Windows I could go to higher resolutions). It seemed to be a
limitation hard-wired into the Linux driver but I'm not sure. For some
people this resolution would be acceptable, for some not..."

Is this an issue that others have noticed? Has this been cured with the 1.0-4496 driver release?

Thanks, Jen
