Default BSD drivers and laptop in docking station

I'm using the FreeBSD drivers from Nvidia, version 1.0-4365. This is a Dell Inspiron laptop with 16 MB video memory. XFree86 works great when the laptop is not docked in an Advanced Port Replicator. I can start and stop X sessions and switch between consoles with no problem. However, when I dock the laptop and start X, only the X console (number 5) works. When I try to swich to another console, I get a rainbow of colors and and an unreadable vertically lined screen. If I try to kill X, then I have to hard reboot to get the laptop to work.
My guess is it's a problem with how the APR is handling the screens but I'm not sure.
Anyone else have this issue?
