No, it's a "useful feature" in the NVidia driver because NVidia's scaler
does a better looking job than the one built into a typical LCD monitor.
Add this to your "Device" section in xorg.conf:

  Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Native"

If you use xrandr to view/choose refresh rates, add this too:

  Option "DynamicTwinView" "false"

There are more details in the driver's README. I think the nv driver has
an option corresponding to the scaling one, but probably not the
TwinView one.
