Unhappy Switching to FS problem : 2.6.4 gf 4 ti 4200


When a game, or my own OpenGL program (using SDL) want to switch to fullscreen, my screen become black, and the only thing I can do is to kill the apps from a console. But I can't recover my X session, the screen is still black. To get X working again, I have to kill the existing X session, and restart it.

I have the problem with the ut2004demo too.

More informations :

Athlon xp 1700+
640Mo sdram
motherboard abit kt7a
Leadtek geforce 4 ti 4200 128mo ddr

Kernel-2.6.4 without any patchs (all fb options disabled, only the agpgart is enabled)
NVIDIA installer 5536
XFree86 Version

Glxinfo say DRI is enabled, glxgears run at ~2200 fps

Memtest86 report no errors, my hardware is correctly cooled.
