#1594: Protect against bogus refresh rate reported by X

 Mythtv uses XF86VidModeGetModeLine to calculate a refresh rate. But it
 the ATI driver is giving a bogus value that makes mythtv think the
 refresh rate is 434Khz. I could see how that would confuse mythtv.

 I submitted an xorg bug report:

 But it seems like mythtv can easily protect itself here. It already
 to 60hz if it can't get any refresh rate from X. I would say it should
 fail over to the default if the refresh rate it gets from X is

 I've attached an untested patch.
