Exclamation Switching Consoles (ctrl-alt-fn) _sometimes_ crashes X

It's everything in the Subject Line: When I switch consoles with ctrl-alt-f#, sometimes the X-server I switch away from, crashes. This also happens when I switch consoles using the kde/kdm-switching menu-entries, or if I use 'chvt'. So this doesn't seem to be related to broken keyhandling.

This bug is already there for quite a time. I had occurrences with other kernels as well as other driver versions, other Xorg versions AND other nvidia-graphics-cards. I report it with my current setup, which you will surely find in the nvidia-bug-report.log

I have nvidia-agp activated with NVAGP=3 in my xorg.conf, which results in 'agp is disabled' in /proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/status. I did this, so I can use software-suspend.

I produced a nvidia-bug-report.log file, but deleted the dmesg part. (Why is the script gathering that? There's personal info in that, that you should ask before gathering!).

So I attach the Xorg.0.log.old, in which a segfault is registered and the nvidis-bug-report.log without the dmesg part. If you need something from it, please feel free to ask.

Thanks!

Ditto here with T61 NVS 140M using 180.18.
Many similar reports have been files so this is a true
bug. (using Fedora 9).
