I had a problem similar to this, beginning with 2.6.37 (2.6.36 was okay).
It turned out to be that newer kernels were detecting the LVDS (LCD panel)
interface from the chipset, event though nothing was attached to that interface.
So GNOME would come up at 1024x768 (max the LVDS supported, I guess).

I initially worked around it by going into the GNOME -> Preferences -> Monitors,
and disabling the LVDS device there, in favour of the 1920x1200 "VGA" device I use.

Later, I hacked my kernel to just ignore the LVDS completely:
