Post (odd) Twinview Problem

So, I just went from using a TNT2 card to a Geforce 2 MX 400. Its actually a Leadtek Geforce 2 MX SHMAX.

Anyway, I am having some trouble with Twinview + TVout. I configured X to display 1152x864 on my main screen and 800x600 on the TVout. (Also tried 640x480). It works, but ONLY if I boot the machine up with TVout as primary. That is, CRT disconnected on bootup. When I try to run my Twinview configuration from the CRT, both the TV and my CRT flash a few times and the whole machine locks up. with some vertical stripes on the CRT. I can't even telnet into it. And unfortunately I have no way of viewing the output from the failed X session because the system crashes and doesn't get to write the data to disk.

Also, when I exit out of the Twinview configuration back to textmode both screens are blank! I see nothing. But I can still run "startx" and get back to my Twinview configuration.

BTW, this is XFree86 4.1 on Debian 3.0.

Any idea what is going on? Here is my XF86Config:

I see there is a new version of the driver released. I'll try that and come back with results.

Thanks
