Intel driver does not honor Preferred Mode

My TMDS-1 connected monitor does not like the default 1600x1200 
resolution used by X. I have created a new mode for this resolution that 
works for me. Unfortunately, the intel driver does not honor the 
"PreferredMode" option in my Monitor section.

I'm using a gentoo ebuild, and I am trying to debug it, but it doesn't 
seem to build anything within src/modes and a grep on for 
"using initial mode" shows that the code that outputs that line in the 
xorg log file is not included in the Where is the mode 
choosing code compiled into?
