I've found a similar reaction with the radeonfb driver.

1. Have you tried running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg from a terminal when
vga=xxx is not specified?
2. I haven't had good luck when running a vesafb AND the card-specific fb
driver. Have you tried using only the nvidiafb without vesafb and vice
