I don't quite understand what you mean. I thought you can't switch back to VT?

Could you describe this a bit more? I'm often seeing text moving around, and 
weird colorful stripes on the screen when I switch to X. Viewing a specific 
page in Mozilla triggers this. Unfortunately, I can't just open the debugger 
and see what's going on at this time, because I can hardly see anything on 
the screen.
When you're able to reproduce it, then have a look at the on-screen menu of 
your monitor and check the frequencies, they're probably way too high.
