Try using the actual binary drivers if you're not already.

The open source driver does not seem to be capable of driving my Samsung 206BW, either. With some effort I can get it to run at 1600x1050 (native resolution), but the display is shifted off screen by at least 20 pixels (no amount of adjustment in the monitor settings can fix it) and the mouse cursor only appears every now and then. Same goes for the nouveau driver.

Maybe if you use the actual native res of 1680x1050 you won't find the picture shifted? I can run my 206BW with nv, vesa, and nvidia all without issues (actually... I push a 206BW and a Dell 1704FPT simultaneously and have no issues.)
