I wish I knew. I've had some difficulty tracking it down in detail.
I did report it here, but my own kernel skills aren't good enough to do a detailed debug.
https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9831

Xorg just gives up, with:
(EE) intel(0): failed to set mode: Invalid argument

It's an i7 CPU, in an ASUS P8Z68-V LX motherboard, with 2x 1600x1200 monitors attached.

For now, I have it working by using the kernel 3.6.5 package from Mageia 2.

With an old working kernel and a new broken kernel, tracking it down should be easy with "git bisect". The tricky part is building and installing the kernel yourself from a git repo rather than using prebuilt packages, but once you figure that out, it should be fairly quick work to pinpoint the bug.
