As a short term fix you should be able to see up an xorg.conf file that
prefers 1280x800. I think using the modes command in the display section
will do what you want. man xorg.conf has more details.

I also recommend filing a bug against xorg-x11-drv-ati. That probably won't
get a quick fix, but will at least document the issue.
