Comment(by Traumflug):

 I'm pretty sure Xorg introduced this intentionally. This hardware run
 Ubuntu before and resolutions vanished from  Xorg release to Xorg release.

 Mac OS X has a checkbox "recommended resolutions" which is enabled by
 default. It's apparently functionally the same as the upper one in PC-
 BSD's advanced settings. So we could move this upper checkbox to the first
 tab, leaving the frequency range text fields for "advanced". Additionally,
 offer non-standard resolutions in the drop down menu in case this check
 box is unchecked, only. A menu for choosing the screen refresh frequency
 (60.0 Hz / 75.0 Hz / auto) is needed, like KDE already has.

 The best thing would be to do this in KDE's and GNOME's panel and drop PC-
 BSD's, perhaps for the next release. Duplicating functionality is rarely a
 good idea, as it adds obsolete maintenance costs.
