Default Trouble with 2 vt's and tv-out

Hi all.

Okey, I got a bit tired of having to shutdown x to switch layout's between twinview with 2 monitors and tvinview with tv out. And, my gf was having serious problems with loging in and starting X on the command line.

So, looking for a solution, I found that it was possible to have several x servers running at the same time on diffrent vt's (yes, I am a linux noob). So, I got gdm setup (wich also solved the gf problem), running one "normal" twinview layout on vt7, and the tv-out one on vt8. Great.

Except, the tv-out one does not work. Instead of getting the image on the tv, I get it on the dfp.

Here comes the twist. Using the exact same XF86Config, with the exact same layouts on the command line, and they work beutifully. Have always worked.

I just realised that there is one thing I havent tried. Will try it when I am done with this post.

In the mean time, here are the logs, and config's and everything. I put them in a zip, I dont want to have to make 4 posts for attachments.
