Default 295.59->304.37: issue with refresh changes

Hi,

I just upgraded my 0.25.2 MythTV system from 295.59 to 304.37 (ION1).
With 295.49 I had perfectly working auto mode switching for matching playback fps.
With 304.37 this function is broken.

Playback log for 295.59 reports:
Code:
2012-08-14 19:22:24.484339 I  VDP: SetVideoRenderer(vdpau)
2012-08-14 19:22:24.484360 I  VDP: SetVideoRender(vdpau) == GetVideoRenderer()
2012-08-14 19:22:24.486083 I  Trying to match best refresh rate 23.976Hz
2012-08-14 19:22:24.486142 I  Trying 1920x1080 24.000 Hz

    Switched to displaying resolution 1920 x 1080, 739mm x 416mm
With 304.37
Code:
2012-08-14 19:08:45.145801 I  Trying to match best refresh rate 23.976Hz
2012-08-14 19:08:45.145972 I  Trying 1920x1080 72.000 Hz
2012-08-14 19:08:45.698234 I  SwitchToVideo: Video size 1920 x 1080: 
    Switched to displaying resolution 1920 x 1080, 738mm x 415mm
72Hz isn't reported by xrandr so it looks like 304.37 have kind of problem with interacting with MythTV.

I see 2 possibilities:
1. New nvidia drivers required some changes in xorg.conf. Without them 304.37 will not cooperate properly with MythTV.
2. There is bug within 304.37.

I have Q: what is compatibility between 304.37 & 295.59 with respect to xorg.conf. Should I change anything in xorg.conf to get 304.37 drivers working as drop-in for 295.59.

xrandr for 304.37 reports:
