Natty problem with console video

Running the beta of 11.04 (Natty) on an i386 machine. (my lab rat)
After loading up 11.04 and fully updating it as of yesterday, I still have a
nagging problem and wonder if anyone else has seen it.
After booting, the kernel goes through it's console messages (I'm using
vga=normal for console messages) and then X starts up and I get the login
If I go into an XFCE session, everything is fine including a konsole session.
However, doing a CTL-BKSP-Fx to get to a real console session, the monitor
goes into a "Out of Sync" mode with something like 17 Hz horiz and 15hz
So I can't use a real console session at all. And also, when shutting down
the machine, where the normal kernel messages would appear, I also get the
Out of Sync message.
In short, once X starts up, a real console session is impossible. Have never
had this problem before. I even killed kdm (from within an konsole session)
thinking it would put me down into a real login screen but nope: still the
Out of Sync.
Anyone else seeing this? Nvidia 6200 graphics board.
