Default Blackout with 1.0-5328 driver and kernel 2.4.23

After I upgraded from 1.0-4496 to 1.0-5328, I encounter X window blackout problem; when starting up, X window goes to black and I must quit it with ctrl+alt+backspace. And somehow TV-out is working as it is supposed to be. Only CRT blacks out; ctrl+alt+F11 brings to character mode.
My card is Ge4 ti4200 8x with TV-output, DVI, and Twinview is enabled for CRT and TV. So I went back to 1.0-4496 for now. As a matter of course I want 1.0-5328 to work.

Twinview-related lines in screen section are as follows:
Option "TwinView" "on"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-J"
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x960,800x600 +100+100; 1024x768,800x600;800x600,800x600; 640x480,800x600"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"

Tnanks in advance.
