Default Problem: Twinview == consoles trashed

Hi!

I have a problem... when I use the computer as single-head everything works perfectly, but if I configure X to use the TV as a second monitor (with TwinView) it's no longer possible to switch to the text console. (Everything is garbled and in many colors).

The TV-out functionality works as expected, but the conseole-switching doesn't.

A second problem (but I'm not sure it's any fault of nvidia drivers... probably it's the kernels fault) is that if I have the TV-out port connected during boot Linux mistakenly considers the TV to be the primary display rather than my CRT-screen (this works correctly for X though).

Any help is appreciated
