Unhappy Re: 1.0-6113 for FreeBSD thread

Background:
Previously running FreeBSD 5.2.1-R on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100
with a 1600x1200 LCD and 1.0-4365 NVIDIA driver for FreeBSD.
Native resolution of 1600x1200 ran perfectly with XFree86-4.3.0.

Recently upgraded to FreeBSD 5.3-R, X.org-6.7.0, and NVIDIA 1.0-6113 driver.

The problem: I cannot get native 1600x1200 resolution !

This appears to be the case with recent Linux versions of the driver, as well.

Follow a suggestion the following thread:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=32997

I was able to get the Xorg "nvidia" driver to bring up a 1588x1200 display
at 16bpp; this is workable, but not ideal.

The final word: the NVIDIA FreeBSD 1.0-6113 driver is "broken", too.

Note to thread watchers at NVIDIA -- Please fix this !
