Yep. VT's seem to be working fine.

the issue is with a proprietary closed source driver.

it's more NVIDIA's fault than the kernel's. If they were more open, we could write better drivers.
I'm sorry, I don't want to sound impertinent but isn't that should be the problem with Windows as well. NVIDIA's code must have been a secret from Windows as well and yet such problems never arise with it even after updating and installing service packs.

I take it you've never heard of non disclosure agreements and patent sharing ?

Linux is open source, and Nvidia isn't.
