Yup, this is exactly the case. I too have an old CRT, but it's a Dell, and when I unplugged the cinema and just used the Dell, nothing happened at all, not even the screen where I can type "live". Nada. Of course, then I tried this when booting normally in OS X, and the same thing happened. Is there some problem with the CRT or my video card (it's an ATI X800XT)? Thanks.
