XFree86 will use that mode no matter what else is available.
Actually, it is a limitation of the VBE BIOS -- these typically
don't list eg. widescreen modes, and Desmond is using the "vesa"
driver, so the X server has no way to force a resolution other than
what is listed in the firmware.
Gah, I didn't look at the Device section ;)
Best bet is to update to Xorg from pkgsrc and use the radeon driver
or try XFree86 4.7.0.
