Has this problem been resolved?

I have the same problem for a similar laptop (HP Pavilion dv5120us). The X Server 1.4.0 (FreeBSD 6.3-R) works fine, but 1.4.2 (From both 6.4 and 7.1) produce this problem.
My screen is 13.25 inch x 8.25 inch in resolution 1280x800.
The DPI shown in Xorg.0.log is (96, 96), which is correct according to the dpi 
expression listed below.

Only strange # from the Xorg.0.log is the screen size 310 x 21.
The screen size should be 330 x 301, which is corrected stated in xorg.conf.

I wonder if this is a X Server 1.4.2 bug.
Is anyway to correct this problem? or X 1.4.0 has to be used for this 
particular laptop till a new X Server released.

Eventually there's a setting in /etc/X11/xorg.conf called
"DisplaySize" that does not match the display size of the
monitor. Take a ruler and check. Then, calculate the dpi
resolution from what the manufacturer says about the amount
of pixels in X and Y (e. g. "1200x800").

                   physical pixels x
        dpi(x) = ---------------------
                 display width in inch


                   physical pixels y
        dpi(y) = ----------------------
                 display height in inch

The dpi resolution chosen by the X server can be determined

        % grep DPI /var/log/Xorg.0.log

This should match the reality.
