I had the same problem. You can get a newer X server, XFree 3.3.1.
You don't need to reinstall X, just follow this link (I think its right)
Unpack the server and put it in your X11R6/bin directory, run XF86_S3V -probeonly
to make sure it works, then make it default with
ln -sf /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_S3V /usr/X11R6/bin/X
then hack your XF86Config for the correct display settings.
