I'm having similar problems with the xf86-video-mga-1.9.100 driver.

The starting resolution is 1280x1024 even though 1024x768 is the
highest in the Xorg.conf file.  Additionally, the mode change keys

Mplayer will play video in the 1280x1024 mode but if I change it
to 1024x768 by using xrandr then I also get the blue screen
instead of the video.

dmesg excerpt:

Xorg.log excerpt:

I can supply any info that would help as well as do testing of
patches, etc.

In the meantime, I've switched back to xf86-video-mga-1.4.7 version
but its easy to switch to the latest for testing since I have both
port skeletons.
