On Lubuntu, even manual xorg.conf creation can't help to set this mode.
- Driver creates the list of available modes, ignoring xorg.conf. Maximum resolution is 800x600 because testing 1024x768x24 causes obvoius fail.
- Driver reads the "1024x768x16" line and sets "800x600x16" because 800x600 is "maximum".
The following quick hack http://www.lubuntu.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=523&p=9941#p9907 allows to use this mode. Of course, this rough solution can't be recommended.
Guys, opensource goes downhill with such "architectures".
