  Display corruption on 29" 2560x1080 monitor

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a 29" monitor that supports a native resolution of 2560x1080.
  Using the nouveau driver with kernel mode setting correctly set the
  resolution of the display, as indicated in the gnome-control-center ->
  display configuration utility, but the display appears to running at a
  much lower apparent resolution.  Text is almost unreadable, everything
  appears incredibly "fuzzy".  I attempted to use the proprietary nvidia
  drivers, and after using the nvidia-xconfig utility to generate a
  xorg.conf file and restarting the machine it is indeed using the
  proprietary driver and hardware acceleration is working, but the fuzzy
  condition persists.

  I am using Ubuntu 13.04, I have updated all the packages.
