ok, thanks so some note on that:

1) I added 1440x900 into VESA and LCD section so you will find it there
as expected

2) The frequency X will choose at the end is outside of my scope as well
so I also recognize the real value used by the X-Server after a test.
I'm sorry but this can't be changed because X is using different algorithms
per driver to choose a specific mode timing. In almost all cases it is
near to the suggestion made by sax but it's not exactly the same

3) We tried to ask people and give explanations about how to contribute into
the CDB (component database) but the result was frustrating because people
don't care for that data in a way that it would help a lot. I'm sorry to
say but there are only a few out there who are really interested to provide
technical information usable by applications. The result was even worse
because I had implemented a notification as you suggested and people
complained about that message bothering them all the time ;) so you see
that's in principal a nice idea but didn't work

4) I thought if I disable the 3D button than it is clear that 3D is not
supported for the card ? ok I will mark this bug as an enhancement for
a better 3D message information the user that this card cannot enable 3D

5) nvidia 3D is a special case as soon as you have installed the binary driver
you can't disable it except uninstalling the driver. As sax is not a tool
to install or uninstall anything we have to live with the fact that you
cannot disable 3D in case of the binary only nvidia driver

==> changed subject for better 3D message
==> marked as enhancement

Hope this helps you
