Question Nvidia 5336 + linux 2.6.5 + vmware 4.5

I'm currently running linux kernel 2.6.5 with the nvidia X drivers in twinmode "DFP,DFP" and everything works great... except when I try to start a virtual client in vmware workstation 4.5.

I get an error stating: ASSERT F(767):985 bugNr=3965
Checking the logs, this seems to correspond to:
SVGA: Bad SetMode: 0x1068000 > 0x1000000 bpl 14336, height 200, offset 0, newsize 17203200

I've attached the log file for anyone who is interested.

Replacing the nvidia X driver with the standard nv driver seems to fix the issue, but, of course, I cannot use both of my displays.

Is anyone else using the nvidia 5336 driver with vmware workstation 4.5? Any hints?
