Bug Description

The nVidia proprietary driver has always needed the "NoPowerConnectorCheck" option on xorg.conf for working properly, as described in bug #522588

Now performing Case ID: xpr-001 there's a regression because now the screen in text mode is flashing and doens't make possible to change tty for loggin in in textual mode and add the option.

I tryied logging in with ssh from another pc and I've found these lines in /var/log/syslog
