Thanks, this workaround helps (a lot)!

But I think it's really only a workaround because when I switch from
the X-session vt to another vt the (e.g. gnome-) session crashes und
the gdm will be started again.

You could try setting your system to StaticColor
(I think it is one of the screen mode options somewhere).
It is not the ideal situation (some programs will crash),
but at least it stops X from trying to update the colour map.
