Angry I'm done (1600x1200 issue)

This is making me sick!

I'm using Linux since 9 years, but resolving this issue [1] is impossible.
I reread Xfree86-Video-Timings-Howto[2] to calculate new modlines for very specified dot clocks (131Mhz, 141Mhz) and trust me,
this is not the first time I'm doing this.
1999 i calculated modlines for my matrox millenium, to get it working with a fixed frequency monitor (Sony GDM-1972 anyone?) and it worked.

But this sucks big time.

The two modelines I calculated are
Modeline "1600x1200" 131.00 1600 1620 1700 1780 1200 1201 1204 1225 +hsync +vsync
Modeline "1600x1200" 141.00 1600 1640 1700 1872 1200 1201 1204 1225 +hsync +vsync

They work flawlessly with the "nv"-driver, but - you will guess it - the nvida-driver is accepting
it [3] and happily shows 1280x1024.

One thing is interesting ...
When I started the X-Server with a calculated modeline, the nvidia-driver makes a little thinking-pause between "white blanking the screen" and "showing the nvidia logo".
This is not the case, when i remove my calculated modelines.

Can anybody from nvidia hear me?!

[2] which is obsolete, because it shouldn't be needed anymore
[3] that means that there is no error, e.g. hsync out of range
