Default Re: VT-switching works only if no TV is attached, zapping works always

While trying a different second card I found out that the problem exists only with two nvidia cards.
I did some more testing and also found out that even with 2 cards installed, but no active screens on second card, VT-switching and restarting X works fine.
As soon as I acivate one screen on the second card, VT-switching doesn't work anymore and restarting X takes 20 seconds extra delay with garbagded display output (almost every time the same, regular pattern). The same delay occurs when terminating X, so shutting down becomes extra annoying!
I hope somebody is interested in fixing this problem and I could help a bit.

Thanks,
