Watch out if you have my combo...
I have ... an analogue CRT (Philips 201B4, which can do all sorts of crazy resolutions/refresh rates). The beta, release candidate and final versions of Ubuntu 9.04 simply don't like this combination when it comes to displaying 1280x1024 (24-bit) at a decent refresh rate (85Hz to avoid flicker).
Why are you running a 5:4 AR on what's presumably a 4:3 CRT? I don't know if it'll be at all related to your refresh rate woes but have you tried 1280×960? 1600×1200 @ 85hz is OK for me.
