It is not sufficient to just add that resolution to seabios list.
I mean, it is not only bios which should have support for it.
For example, qemu/kvm will not work with it.
The problem here is that 1366 is not dividable by 8. In other words,

Many laptops have it as their native display resolution, for example the

covered that case too.
