Question FreeBSD 5.2.1 and GeForce FX Go5600 multiple monitors problems

Hi all folk, I have some problems with nvidia drivers and FreeBSD 5.2.1.

My machine is the sony vaio PCG-GRT915M. It ships with GeForce FX Go5600.

I've installed the last freebsd nvidia-driver port with WITH_NVIDIA_HACKS=yes option. If I use only the LCD monitor all works fine (for now). The problems come up when I want to use LCD+CRT or LCD+TV both in the TWINVIEW mode off and on. In these cases X starts correctly but when I exit from X then my machine freezes and I see strange colors on my LCD.

I've noted another matter also. If I start X with Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT", I can see X on CRT only (the LCD is inactive) but when I exit from X the video signal doesn't return on my LCD. Anyway the system is still up in this case and I can run command (blindly) on the virtual console and restart the machine. The same thing happens with TV device.

It is as good as the nvidia-driver doesn't reopen the LCD device.

Will anybody help me to do this problem?

Thanks a lot.
