Default GeForce 2 + nvidia -4xxx driver flicker after exit X on Dell Inspiron

Hi everyone!

I'm new to this forum, so please excuse me if I'm asking questions that have been asked and answered before. I'll try to catch up with the list.

I have a Dell Inspiron 2650 with a GeForce 2 on it. I downloaded and installed the latest nvidia driver and all is well (games and all), except when I exit the X server. The console display flickers badly, even if I switch to a different console. The only solution is to reboot.

Do other people have this problem? Is there a solution (other than keep X running)? If it's a bug, will nvidia try to fix it? Where do I submit a bug report?
