It seems the correct modes for the display are listed in the DVI-0 options (as they were in the previous version of the driver), but the modes for VGA are suspicious: the standard VGA modes 640, 800, 1024, and a weird extemely non-square mode 1360x768. The standard resolution of the monitor is 1280x1024.
