Default 7300GT: tvout: Overscan changes when switching from tv to tft

I start a new X server for my tvout needs (startx -- :1 -depth 24 -screen tvout) and every time I switch back to my TFT (ctrl+alt FX) and then back again, the screen has rezised itself with shiny new black borders as a result.

My Overscan-setting in xorg.conf is ignored the next time I start the tvout-server.
Only a reboot, or a change in xorg.conf makes the Overscan option working again. Non-X virtual consoles also get corrupted, resulting in coloured blocks against a black background all over the screen. These consoles display properly until I activate the tvout-X server.

Is this a known issue wich one can expect fixes for in the upcoming version?

----
I forgot to include my system specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo
Asus P5B motherboard
Gainward 7300GT PCI-X
2.6.18-rc5-mm1 kernel
1.0-8774

This is not a known bug.

Does this reproduce if you are not using two X servers (TwinView, Xinerama, or just separate X screens on the same X server)?

Also, please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log while this problem is present.

Thanks,
Lonni

Here's the nvidia-bug-report.log

This problem appeared when i got my new hardware. Previously I've been using a nforce2 board along with a gf4200 card, same config and no issues.

I've been playing around a bit with only my TV as my screen, and it's all the same. as soon as tvout is activated, all virtual consoles get screwy, and when switching back to tv-output, the borders are back.

I've posted about it at least twice myself, as have other people, for the past two or three driver versions regarding the overscan changing when you switch resolution or go to the console and back into X using ctrl alt f1/f2/etc.

It's a 6200A. It happens on my GF4MX as well.
I need to use the nvidia-settings tool to change the overscan back anytime I switch terminals or change resolution.

Does this reproduce if you are not using two X servers ?
