What can I do to get rid of this annoying problem?

I'm not sure what the problem is here. If you mean you want to surpress the
output that startx produces, do:

startx > /dev/null 2>&1

If you'd rather keep it for later:

startx > ~/.startx-output.log 2>&1

Or am I not understanding your problem?

No, he means that junk is left behind on tty7 so that the next time he starts X, X uses tty8. It happens to me occasionally, but not consistently. I've always attributed it to the fact that the nvidia drivers are crap, shrugged my shoulders and moved on. Don't really know though.
