Default Problems in switching from TV-OUT to CRT

Hello,

i have a problem with my nvidia-card under Debian GNU/Linux. After starting an X-Server using TV-Out, everything is fine until I shutdown this X-Server. Instead of switching from TV to my standard monitor I have my framebuffer-console on the TV.
On console I use a VESA-framebuffer with my Geforce2GTS. The Problem appears with 2.4 and also 2.6 kernel, so I think it's kernel independent. I can remember that I had not this problem some time ago, I think before I updated the XFree86-packages, but I'm not sure.
I'm using xfree86 in Version 4.2.1-12.1 from Debian testing, the nvidia-Driver is 1.0.4496

A few minutes ago, I've tested again and have seen that the consoles F1-F6 are also shown on TV while X is running on TV-Out.

Here is my XF86Config-4, I usually start X for TV-Out with

$ startx -- :0 -layout TV

Default framebuffers is not the reason

After opening the thread I have compiled a kernel without framebuffer. I tested the TV-Out again and it's still the same problem, though the picture on TV looks a little bit different when switching between X and the consoles and after shutting down the X-Server.
So the framebuffer seems not to be the reason for this problem.
