The problem may be that the switch is not supporting the monitor ID 
lines, or that it is reporting a different ID then the real monitor.
What I suspect is realy happening is that the switch does not support 
the frequency you are using to the monitor, and it, rather then Linux, 
is reporting the invalid settings.  If you have X set up for more then 
one resulation, try using Ctl-Alt-<keypad + or -> to change settings, 
and see if that helps.  (I only have experence with manual switches, so 
I may be way off base here...)

 for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
