Thanks for the tips.
Setting PreferredMode caused the X server to lockup during start-up
before switching out of text mode and requiring kill -9, until I removed
my HorizSync and VertRefresh lines.
Tried with X -configure afresh and achieved the same effect.
With DDC and without HorizSync and VertRefresh lines PreferredMode is
working but I'm having to use a lower refresh and I've lost the highest
resolution my monitor displays.
So for me the choice seems to be:
- stick with my old config and sort out resolution when I log in
- accept lower refresh (75Hz) and lower max resolution (rarely used it
anyway), and use PreferredMode
