Talking Re: Cannot get 1920x1200 on D800 (wrong virtual size)

More info:

This works at 1920x1200 resolution (i.e. WUXGA) on a Dell D800 running Solaris 10, with all patches as of 2005-10-17. I am using the new "nvidia" driver (not the "nv" driver) installed by following the instrucitons at http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=52257.

Video card is:

nVidia Corporation NV28 [GeForce4 Ti 4200 Go AGP 8x] rev 161
NVIDIA(0): VideoRAM: 32768 kBytes

Here is my working /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
