While I am by no means as good at linux configuration as some on this
list, I do have a laptop, Compaq R3000, running a 1280 x 800 display. I
too had to add the modeline but I also added a section called "modes" to
specify the 16:10 format. I noticed it was omitted from your xorg.conf
so I thought it might be worth a try for you. My laptop has an Nvidia
chipset so you can ignore anything related to it as it won't apply to
your setup.
