Exclamation NVIDIA DRIVER 180.22 (linux 64bit) - black screen when returning to console mode

Acer 5930 with a 9600M GT card, 64-bit Gentoo linux.

After returning from the XServer to console mode all I can see is a black screen. I can still work at the console - guessing what I type in - but I'm not able to see what I do.

Log-file attached. I looks like the same bug as in http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=121355, but the driver version is different. Various attempts compiling the kernel with or without framebuffer, using or not the UseVBios module parameter yield exactly the same result.

Yes this seems like a known problem, lots of other threads about it.
It used to work correct in the past, but at some driver version it was broken.

Is there anything planned/going to fix it?
