Description of problem:
On my Lenovo t500 and kernel-3.8.3-201 wrong video mode is set during boot. There is cca 20% unused free space on the bottom of the LCD and when the gdm later starts it uses much lower resolution (1024x768) than is my native resolution (1680x1050).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
Actual results:

Expected results:
Video mode with native resolution that fits whole screen is set

Also I have the following in my /etc/default/grub:
