Unfortunately I cannot confirm this. Checked 2.4.0-test10 and the problem
is still there. I digged further and it seems to be a race condition(?)
triggered by swapped out stuff - because just starting X and switching
back to the console works fine, but as I start some memory-consuming stuff
(I have only 32Megs of ram) and then switch back to the console its
completely garbagled the first time and black the second time and later.

For your information, my config, etc. is attached below.

Richard.
