Default X and frame buffer not playing nicely

Hi. I am not sure when this started, but X and frame buffer are not
playing nicely. For the frame buffer I am using the new uvesafb and
updated to the latest otherwise.

What happens is that if I start X my frame buffer which I use on the
virtual consoles gets messed up and I get lots of messages in the log
about error switching modes.

Oct 30 14:51:33 ccs kernel: uvesafb: mode switch failed (eax=0xff04,
err=0)

Any assistance would be appreciated.

My emerge --info is below:

In my case, X dosn't work with 2.6.27, only with 2.6.26, except it
doesn't like the Windows MENU key and refuses to pass it to fvwm like
it used to. Xorg 1.4 was fine, the upgrade to 1.5.2 broke some keys
which xsetkbmap fixed, ecept it doesn't pass MENU thru as it used to,
and booting in 2.6.27 borks X entirely:

Fatal server error:
Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices

It doesn't look like this is your problem, but maybe it is related.
