Matrox driver does not set correct refresh rates for second monitor after reboot.

When I reboot my system the second monitor does not have the correct refresh rates. The monitor says refresh rates out of range and says the current setting is 102KHz and 81Hz. I need 94KHz and 75Hz for this to work correctly. Both of my monitors are identical and are setup the same in xorg.conf. If I restart X then the second monitor is OK. It does this from both a cold boot and a warm boot.
When X starts the second monitor reports that the refresh rates are out of range with the values 102KHz and 81Hz. The correct refresh rates are 94KHz and 75Hz.
Both monitors should have the correct refresh rates set and I should be able to use the second display after a boot or reboot without having to restart X.
I have a Matrox G450 video card. I am running xorg 6.8.0-r4. I also tried xorg 6.8.2 but it had the same problem. I am running Gentoo 2004.3 on an amd64 machine in 64 bit mode.
Since I have a work around I have set the severity to minor. I posted this in the Gentoo Bugzilla and they asked me to post it here.
