Unhappy acpi suspend garbled consoles [UNSOLVED]

Hi,
I am running the latest 8174 drivers. Have problems with acpi suspend. Machine suspends fine and comes back alive also.

If I suspend from within X without using the chvt jugglery, the display comes back up. However the virtual consoles are all F***** up. They take commands though.

If I suspend from a console with X running on vt 7, then also everything seems normal but as soon as I switch to X and come back to consoles, they are SC***** up. The results are not very different with chvt jugglery also.

I am not using framebuffer. Just plain vga console. Whats the remedy?

Thanks a lot!

Code:
localhost ~ # lspci | grep -i nvidia
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34M [GeForce FX Go5200] (rev a1)
Code:
localhost ~ # cat suspend-to-ram.sh
#!/bin/bash

if [ -e /root/.suspending ]; then
        echo "Suspend already in progress. Quitting....."
else
        touch /root/.suspending
#       chvt 1
        sync
        vbetool dpms off
        vbetool vbestate save > /root/.vbe_state
        echo "mem" > /sys/power/state
#       vbetool post
        vbetool vbestate restore < /root/.vbe_state
        /sbin/hwclock --hctosys
        vbetool dpms on
#       chvt 7
        rm /root/.vbe_state
        rm /root/.suspending
fi
From /var/log/dmesg:
Code:
PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
PCI: If a device doesn't work, try "pci=routeirq".  If it helps, post a report
pnp: the driver 'system' has been registered
pnp: match found with the PnP device '00:00' and the driver 'system'
pnp: match found with the PnP device '00:09' and the driver 'system'
PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@f0000000 for 0000:01:00.0
PCI: Bridge: 0000:00:01.0
  IO window: disabled.
  MEM window: c1000000-c1ffffff
  PREFETCH window: e0000000-efffffff
P.S. The reason I have commented out "vbetool post" is that it results in "Illegal instruction". And if vbetool dpms is not used, the screen never comes back on.

I see it too. I put up with it and stay in X.
Can be annoying when rebooting as the console
can't be seen on the way down but I'd rather
have it this way (X OK, consoles useless) than
the converse.
