nv driver problem

use "nv" driver in XF86config-4
when I startx, then switch back(or exit XWindow) to console, the console screen flicker (sometimes the screen shift down) .
I change driver from "nv" to "vesa" ,then startx again, then the console screen switch back to the original state. Now,everything well.

I'm using debian in my laptop.

There is nothing wrong with my Xwindow using "nv" driver. It only cause console problem.

unfortunately you are not losing your mind, I have the same problem on my
vaio running suse9.0
console is fine, and X is fine, but after exiting X and going back to console is screwed up.
