Geforce 4 Go and X-Server Problem with shutdown

I have a Inspiron 8200 with a Geforce 4 Go with 64MB and a working SUSE 7.3! I have also successfully installed the nVidia drivers and my X-Server is working well!

So I could be happy!? Yes and NO! Shutting down the system is in the text mode no problem but when I have start the x-server and then I try to switch back in text mode (directly or indirectly with the shutdown-command) or in another runlevel my system will hang :o(

Also a Ctrl-Alt-Del will crush the system like every other X-Server stopping act.
I looked in the /var/log/messages file and saw that the nvidia driver did infinitly allocate and freed memory. Here seems to be a problem, but I'm not sure.

Thx for ANY help ;-))

why not a Ctrl Alt Backspace to finish
the x-session to go back in textmode, or click
on a preinstalled quit or logout buttom.

Switching back to console is buggy on Laptops using the nvidia drivers. There's one workaround that fixes the problem: use vesafb as a framebuffer driver for the console, then it will work fine.
