I am using the standard opensuse ati driver called "radeon".
I've been using this driver for several years with the same card
but with an 17" CRT monitor with resolution 1024x768. I
never experienced any problem with it.

My TFT is set according to the manufacturer's instructions (20"
monitor, 1400x1050 at 60 Hz. The only thing I can think of
that the graphics card is not powerful enough for changing the
screen fast. I don't think it is trying to change resolution.

I will try the monitor with another more powerful card.

I doubt a "more powerful" card is a good solution to your problem. My 20"
Viewsonic LCD is 1400x1050@60. When I first got it 2 years ago I was using a
4MB Tseng PCI card designed in 1996. It gave no problem in framebuffer, DOS
or OS/2, but did for a time have a problem in Mandriva's X that eventually
got fixed: https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=34619

Will yours work OK if you boot a Knoppix CD? Have you tried commenting out
the UseModes line in xorg.conf?
