Desktop resolution doesn't match either xorg.conf or gconf desktop settings

I did an upgrade of the kernel, kernel-module-fglrx and ati-fglrx. I'm using Fedora Core 4.

The kernel is:
Code:
uname -r
2.6.16-1.2108_FC4
The kernel-module-fglrx and ati-fglrx are:
Code:
rpm -qa | grep -i fglrx
ati-fglrx-8.23.7.1-0.lvn.5
kernel-module-fglrx-2.6.16-1.2108_FC4-8.23.7.1-0.lvn.5
This is my xorg.conf, I have bolded the proper settings. They are as they should be:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "SyncMaster"
	DisplaySize  320	240
	HorizSync    30.0 - 96.0
	VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0
	Option	    "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "aticonfig Monitor 0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
	BoardName   "ATI Radeon 9700 Pro"
	Option	    "VideoOverlay" "on"
	Option	    "FSAAEnable" "on"
	Option	    "FSAADisableGamma" "off"
	Option	    "FSAAScale" "2"
	Option	    "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "ATI Graphics Adapter 0"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	Option	    "VideoOverlay" "on"
	BusID       "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1400x1050" "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "aticonfig Screen 0"
	Device     "ATI Graphics Adapter 0"
	Monitor    "aticonfig Monitor 0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
	EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
	Group        0
	Mode         0666
EndSection
When i look at the Xorg.0.log it says the following:
Code:
(II) fglrx(0): Total of 58 modes found for primary display.
(--) fglrx(0): Virtual size is 2048x1536 (pitch 2048)
But non of those 58 modes is 1400x1050, the setting defined in both xorg.conf and gconf settings.

I tryed running:
Code:
system-config-display
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 381, in ?
    dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, rhpl.videocard.VideoCardInfo())
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 571, in __init__
    self.xml.get_widget("secondMonitorLabel").set_text(monitor_list[1].modelname)
TypeError: GtkLabel.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None
but I get the message shown above

With the old drivers and the kernel i just edited xorg.conf and gconf to get the resolution I wanted, but now it does not work.

Cube runs fine, so does Neverball. UT2k4 doesn't run at all. It loads, the splash screens hows, changes to full screen and then drops me back to desktop.

glxgears and fglrx_glxgears run very fast, in short the driver is installed.

Here's the proof:
Code:
fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9700 Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.5695 (8.23.7)
The login screen is in some insane resolution that isn't even defined in the xorg.conf. When I edit gconf desktop resolution setting by hand to 1400x1050 and the log out and again in, I get 1280x1024 resolution

How can I solve this problem?

P.S. The list of resolutions I get when using Desktop -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution doesn't have anything to do with the settings in the xorg.conf There are some that are defind in there, but some are missing and a lot of resolutions I didn't defin anywhere.

Can someone at least post me in the right direction?

I don't know where to look anymore. Should I contact ATI?
