Angry Strange problem with newest nvidia driver

Hi,
I'm having problems getting the latest driver working with
my Nvidia GeForce 4 ti 4200 agp 8x card.
After a lot of tweaking, reading etc. i got it semi working.

Its only working if I first plug my (DFP) monitor into the
CRT output on my card and then starting X. After it has loaded,
i have to plug the screen into the DFP port on the card. Then it works.

It however doesn't work if I start X with 2 screens plugged into
both the DSP and CRT, then both screens go blank.

I have tried to change the options in the device section of my
config file.
After a lot of tweaking i found out that i needed the
IgnoreDisplays option or else it would freeze my system.

The IgnoreDisplayDevices that won't freeze my system is this:

Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV,DFP"

The following freezes the computer completely

IgnoreDisplays "CRT,TV"

I'm very amazed that the following won't work:
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV,CRT"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"

My (semi) working device/screen sections are like this:
------------------------------------------------

Section "Device"

Option "NvAgp" "0"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VideoRam 65536
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV,DFP"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
Group 0
Mode 0666
EndSection


Can anyone tell me what's wrong?
I've been trying to figure this out for days now but no luck


Best regards
Peter
