Default can't restore console after TV out

I am running with only a TV attached to my GeForce 4 MX 420 card. I just upgraded to FC3, kernel 2.6.9-1.681_FC3, X.org version 6.8.1-12.FC3.21, and the 6629 nvidia drivers. I now have problems switching back to console mode after running X. X comes up fine, but when I switch to another vt, the screen blanks, and my TV says it gets no signal from the graphics card. Same when I shut down X. Neither the system nor X is hung, and I can switch back to X just fine, but all text-mode consoles are blank until I reboot the system. The console is fine during boot.

I didn't have any such problems before the upgrade, when I was using FC2 and the 6111 drivers.

I have tried using a few different VGA modes for my console (kernel parameter vga=###) but either the problem is unchanged, or the X modes get hopelessly garbled.

Some stuff from my xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nvidia"
	VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
	BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
	Option	    "NoLogo" "True"
	Option	    "RenderAccel" "True"
	Option	    "TVOverScan" "0.5"
	Option	    "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
	Option	    "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
	Option	    "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, CRT"
My X log file indicates that the int10 module is loaded. There are no obvious error messages (except something about apm_bios).

Also, my X shows much more flicker than it did with the previous software.

Anyone else see these problems? Any fixes?
