We have now enabled KMS (Kernel Mode Setting) for Intel GPUs, so the
mode setup is indeed done by the i915 driver in the kernel.
This sounds more like a bug in the monitor firmware than a bug in the
driver... but still, it is probably possible for the driver to work
around it. I suggest you report a bug at
