Unhappy Lockup on logout -- RH9

Hello all...

I've got an MSI GeForce4 Ti 4200 with AGP8X running on Red Hat 9. I bought it for the video out functionality, which works really well. However, every time I try to log out of an X session, the machine hangs. It also hangs whenever I try to switch to a virtual TTY... I've seen that part listed as a known problem.

Another possible clue to what's happening is the fact that the system hangs happen only after a reboot. In other words, if I boot up under the "nv" driver, then edit the config file to use "nvidia" instead, then restart my X session (log out and in again), I can stop and start to my heart's content. After I reboot, the X server starts up fine for the first session, but locks up the first time I try to log out or reboot.

I'm using an Asus P2B-DS motherboard, which is a dual-P3 board with the Intel 440BX AGP chipset. I'll attach my config file. (Commenting out my configuration for the TwinView TV-out doesn't seem to change anything.) I don't see any errors in the X logs. I've tried disabling AGP, which doesn't solve the problem.

I'm just down the street from the NVidia Santa Clara offices, and I wouldn't mind lending out my machine for a little while if it would help.

Would returning to an earlier version of the drivers help me?

Same problem here. GeForce Ti4 4200 with AGP 8X on an ABIT BD7II mainboard (no raid) with Intel P4 2Ghz processor. When I use the latest nvidia drivers on RH9, my system locks up when I log out, and I need to reboot. I've got the same problem with and without twinview. Let me know if you need anything (config or log files).
