Unhappy VT switching with XFree 4.3.0 on Debian

Hello everybody,

I have been using the nvidia driver on Debian happily for a while now, but a few days ago, upgrading the distribution installed XFree-4.0.3. Since then, VT switching does not work anymore when XFree has been started (the VTs display only small random colored squares). Also, TV-out does not work anymore (I used to activate it by switching to 800x600 and use the "nvtv" program).

I tried to upgrade the nvidia drivers from 1.0.4496 to 1.0.5336, but it did not have any effect. The Video Card is a riva TNT2, the kernel is a self-compiled 2.4.23.

Does anyone have already solved this issue?

Thanks.
