Lets see... yes I did use the option.
(I attached my config file.)
I discovered yesterday that if I type "startx" while the screen is flickering (without be able to see the console) X actually starts again and sends me back to a visible X.
However it would be nice to be able to use the shell after logging off X , without a reboot...
Maybe need to "trigger" the TV-out in some way when exiting the XFree server?
