    Have you tried the "vga_reset" tool of
    svgalib? It is intended to solve exactly
    that problem (but it doesn't seem to work
    right with some modern video cards like mine).

    It also looks like int10 module of XFree
    could check whether or not the int vector
    is really pointing to the vbios, before
    calling it.
