nvidia force_ws does not enable 16:9 modes

With my GeForce based ASRock K8NF4G-SATA2 motherboard, using the R1A2 release, the system freezes while loading the desktop unless I disable local apic in the boot menu.
With local apic disabled, it runs, but video falls back to VESA mode, which does not support my monitor's native resolution of 1920x1080. The motherboard has VGA as its only output, there is no DVI or second video port.
I have attached the syslog, listdev, listdev -d, and nvidia log.
The funny thing is that according to the nvidia log, the driver tries 1920x1080, but it concludes that the screen is not widescreen enough.
