Unhappy 1680x1050 Resolution?

I have a nVidia Corporation NV37GL [Quadro FX 330/Quadro NVS280] setup in twinview mode. I want monitor 0 to be at 1280x1024 and Monitor 1 to be at 1680x1050 (it's native resolution) but can't seem to figure out how to do it. For some reason, monitor 1 keeps getting set to 1600x1200. I'm running 100.14.19 and have the following in my xorg.conf


Any idea how I can do this?
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "vg"
HorizSync 31.5 - 64.3
VertRefresh 50.0 - 70.0
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "opti"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 31.5 - 64.3
VertRefresh 50.0 - 70.0
EndSection




Section "Device"

Identifier "nvdual"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:5:0:0"
Screen 0
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen 0"
Device "nvdual"
Monitor "vg"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "TwinView" "True"

# Option "MetaModes" "nvidia-auto-select, DFP-0: 1680x1050"
# this didn't work. No display on Monitor 1, nor did
# CRT-1: 1280x1024, DFP-0: 1680x1050

Option "MetaModes" "nvidia-auto-select, nvidia-auto-select"

to try to rule things out, I've downgraded to NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-1.0-9639.run. Doesn't seem to help though. I can run the 2nd monitor in 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 but not 1680x1050 which I'd really like to run it in

You're getting 1600x1200, because that's what xorg.conf specified.

specifying 1680x1050 as in:

Option "metamodes" "CRT: nvidia-auto-select +0+0, DFP: 1680x1050 +1280+0"

Yields a blank, black screen on the second monitor, and the log file shows:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
(II) NVIDIA(0): "CRT:nvidia-auto-select+0+0,DFP:1680x1050+1280+0"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1280 x 1024

You'll need to generate a verbose X log, and then a new bug report.
