So you are the lucky one, eh? For me, a freshly installed Fedora 10 with
stock "nv" driver just fully crashes when switching to a text console. After
installing the "nvidia" driver it looked a little bit better - that means: i can
switch to a console, but when then rotating with i.e. ALT+ARROW_LEFT
the computer just hangs at vt8. The solution for me was to install xdm
instead of using gdm, plus using evdev instead of the default kbd and
mouse drivers. It seems like there is currently a lot of development
going on that is supposed to make the boot process nicer for certain distros,
but it also seems that these efforts are done with hot needles and are very
poorly tested.

Not that I'm aware of ...

I'm not maintaining this patch any more, because all the pain
those multi-GPU setups caused lead me to a different solution:

That's a know problem: the randr extension and xinerama don't play
nicely with composite extension. There are no signs that this is going
to be fixed in any foreseeable future.
