Issues w/ Xorg 7.0, Dell L610, and i810 drivers

I'm using a Dell L610 to run FC5 (updated), and it has an i915GM controller,
which uses the i810 drivers...

I can't seem to configure it correctly (I've attached the config I'm
using).  It seems to have two issues.

(1) it probes for the monitor DDC sync values, which disagree with what I've
    explicitly configured, but looking at the Xorg.0.log file, it gives
    no indication of what the EDID actually said the values were (grrr... you
    can never have too much logging).

(2) it then complains that "1400x1050" isn't a known modeline (no mode of
    this name), even though I've explicitly configured a modeline with that
    exact setting.

and the second head (in this case, connected to a Dell 1704FPV via DVI
hanging off a port-replicator) never seems to light up.

I've attached both the config and the log file.  If anyone has had luck with
this, please let me know.
