You aren't using interlaced video modes, are you?  Interlaced
video modes don't seem to work at all with any KMS-based
driver.  That's why I use nv.  (The proprietary nvidia driver
for my chipset no longer works with recent X servers.)
I had to download the source for nv and compile it myself, though,
since nv has been removed from the distribution and the old
binary version doesn't work with the new X server.
