I ran into a resolution problem with the xf86-video-mga-1.9.100 driver
and reverted back to xf86-video-mga-1.4.7 which was working okay.

My card was a Matrox G400.  I've also done some searching but have not
turned up anything helpful so far.  Maybe give the older driver a
try and see if that works for you.
