The software has no sure way to figure out the config is out of range.  If
it gets the DDC(?) info from the monitor I don't believe XFree86 will let
it use out of range settings.

As far as redhat-config-xfree86, doesn't the "--reconfig" switch do that?

      --reconfig    don't base configuration on existing config files
