I ran into a resolution problem with the xf86-video-mga-1.9.100 driver (http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/mid.cgi?20071014075931.3c5ec756.rpratt1950) 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.
