Geode chipset detects monitor wrong

Hi all!

I have some problems with X detecting monitors in a wrong way.

On one thin client it works as it should, on another thin client it doesn't.
2 thin clients should have exactly the same hardware.

Here follows the Xorg log for the failing client:

And this is for the working client:

Somewhere around rule 500 you can see (multiple times):
Driver mode

And in the working log (multiple times):
Default mode

I have no idea what those differences mean.

The clients get booted from the network and use X 1.4.2 and geode driver 2.10.0.

I also tried with 2.10.1 but with the same result.
Problem is that we are using alot of monitor types.

Any help is VERY appreciated.
