Default Fedora 10, xinerama, ctrl-alt-F2 switch screens BLACK

Just installed Fedora 10 on a Dell D820 laptop.

Using nvidia driver 180.11 in "xinerama" for dual screens, if I attempt to switch to another session via ctrl-alt-F2, all I get is a BLACK SCREEN. Interestingly, the input works because I can blindly type commands that run, I just can't see anything.

Switching back to "X" via ctrl-alt-F7 then terminating "X", then switching to screen 2 (ctrl-alt-F2), shows the screen with a weird light blue cross hatch all over it. Hitting "return" line feeds a normal black screen with text.

This problem only occurs in dual screen xinerama! Single screen mode does not show this problem.
