Default 295.53: Consoles turn blank (regression)

Since 295.49, switching from X to any of the text consoles (Ctrl+Alt+F1...F6) shows nothing but a blank screen. Keyboard is working, I can log in and work with the shell. Switching back to X brings back a visible screen.

I googled the problem and found an older bug report where the poster wrote that the invisible text console actually appears on a second monitor when connected to the internal (usually inactive) onboard graphics adapter.

I have an Asrock A780FullDisplayPort with onboard AMD RV610 graphics adapter, but I'm using a dedicated GeForce 7600 GS adapter.

Distribution is Gentoo x86, kernel 3.0.17-tuxonice-r1.
