NetBSD hal.xisop 5.0_BETA NetBSD 5.0_BETA (GENERIC_MM) #1: Thu Jan  1 22:39:44 
EST 2009  root%hal.xisop@localhost:/usr/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC_MM 

Using the rage128 driver with netbsd-5 xorg, whenever X11 is started console 
becomes blank and remains blank.  Thus, switching VT or exiting X11 leaves an 
unusable system until reboot.  This did not occur with XFree86 on netbsd-4 
using the "ati" driver, but occurs with Xorg using the "rage128" driver.

        BoardName   "Rage 128 PF/PRO AGP 4x TMDS"

Moreover, an Radeon card I tried as an alternative also has the same problem, 
using the "radeon" driver.

        BoardName   "Radeon R100 QD [Radeon 7200]"

This happens weither DRI is used or not.
This appears somewhat related to xsrc/23352.
