Default Re: [BUG] NVIDIA 295.09 switching to TTY, monitor turns off and crashes X

@ultr: I did not test 295.20 (yet) due to lack of time, but I guess it's a problem that occurs with vesafb. If I had more time to check, I would recompile my kernel and see whether it fails for me too with vesafb.
Uvesafb is using userspace instead of Video BIOS, so if it really works with uvesafb and fails with vesafb, we have 'pinned the error down' and nVidia should be able to reproduce. Although I guess if it fails for the 8600M GT with vesafb, they should have be able to reproduce it with any default setup.
