Default Nvidia 6150 doesn't execute Options from xorg.conf everytime

I've got a motherboard with an Nvidia 6150 chipset on it running the 1.0.8762 release of the Nvidia drivers on Fedora Core 5.

I've got the monitor connected via S-Video or Component, the same thing happens on either one.

The relevant section of xorg.conf:
Driver "nvidia"
Option "TVOverScan" "0.55"

The problem:
When I reboot my computer, when X first loads (to do the booting sequence) I see the Nvidia logo, and then the booting sequence begins in FULL SCREEN (ie. using the the overscan setting). Once X restarts to load the login manager (GDM) the overscan setting is ignored and I get a huge black border. If I kill and restart X (CTRL ALT BACKSPACE) the overscan setting is used and the border goes away.

I've reported this bug to Fedora, but it appears to be an Nvidia issue, so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Latest drivers,
my xorg.conf option "TVOverscan" is totally ignored.
I've no warning or errors in the output log by xorg (7).

Starting nvidia-settings to load the configuration file in my home from command line works, sometimes, randomly (??)
