Default Fullscreen problem in text mode

Hello out there!

I am using VMWare Workstation 5.5 (currently 5.5.4 build-44386) under OpenSuSE 10.2 (KDE 3.5.7 "release 35.1") with Original NVIDIA-Driver (Versions 1.0-9631 and 100.14.09) on a

with NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M
and SEIKO SEC KH164 LCD Monitor
using a resolution of 1024x768 with 24 bit colour.

Since I installed OpenSuSE 10.2 with VMWare Workstation 5.5 (different releases) I am experiencing problems running the VM fullscreen in text mode (80x25). On the x axis there is a disalignment of the screen and the lines of characters are broken by black lines.

I have been using VMWare Workstation 5.0 under OpenSuSE 10.0 (even with the original NVIDIA drivers) and did not experience such problem.

Using xorg.conf with Driver "nv" in Section "Device" makes the problem disappear.

Anybody with a good idea? I am using a lot of virtual DOS machines, and would prefer running them fullscreen in text mode.
