Default Black screen on Xorg-Restart / switch to console via CTRL alt F1

Hi

When i boot my machine, everything runs fine (init 5, with Xorg 7.2/kdm/kde)

BUT:
If I log off and the login-manager should appear (kdm), the screen just goes black. Same thing if I try to switch from KDE to console via CTRL + alt + F1.

When the screen is black, a few seconds later my machine does a single "beep".
The keyboard works, so I can do a reboot with CTRL + alt + del

Machine is reachable via ssh, so I started nvidia-bug-report.sh after the screen went black. I even could get some messages from /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log at the time the error occoured:

/var/log/messages:

This is very strange to me, because the black screen only appears if I leave X/restart X.

Would be nice if I get some feedback on this problem...

I attached the nvidia-bug-report.log

What I forgot: I even tried the latest stable vanilla Kernel 2.6.19.1-default (compiled it with my config ("make oldconfig...")). The problem stays.
