Default Lost resolution option after upgrade

I upgraded my machine from Mandriva 2008.1 32 bit (xorg 1.4.0.90, nvidia 169.12) to Mandriva 2009.1 64 bit (xorg 1.6.1 nvidia 180.51). After doing so, I lost a resolution setting option (mode) on my second monitor (of course, the only one lost was the one I needed and used).

Main monitor DFP-0 is a Samsung 21.3" 1600x1200 LCD. Secondary monitor DFP-1 is a Vizio GV52LFHDTV10A 52" 1920x1080 LCD HDTV. Both are connected via DVI. I use TwinView clone mode. Because of the mismatch in aspect ratio, I need to run the Vizio at 1600 wide to match the main Samsung.

Before the upgrade, I could select 1920x1080, 1600x1024, 1400x1050, 1280x1024, 1280x960, 1280x720, etc on the Vizio in nvidia-settings. After the upgrade, the 1600x1024 option disappeared! I have spent many hours playing with settings, trying options, etc, to no avail.

This is want I want: Option "metamodes" "1600x1200, 1600x1024 @1600x1200" and when I try it, the Vizio says "no signal". 1920 and 1280 resolutions do work, however, although that is not what I want. I have never specified any hard mode lines.

I would really appreciate any help! I don't know why this is happening, none of my hardware changed. On 2008.1, I started the Xserver in verbose mode to a file. Here are a some relevant lines:
