Re: Fullscreen problem in text mode
I've seen a few reports of this. My investigation showed that VMWare is requesting an interlaced mode when it goes to full screen, which results in the problem that you're reporting. This is a VMWare bug.
You can attempt to work around it with the ModeValidation option, by disallowing interlaced modes. You'll need to generate a verbose bug report per the sticky post if you need further assistance.
