Default X kills console text

Hi all, my first post here (moved from predecessor forum), hope it's in the right area.

I recently did a complete install of OpenBSD 4.3 for i386. Setup is pretty much default. I'm having a problem with Xorg; it runs fine but when I exit it (either temporarily with Ctrl-Alt-Fn, or permanently) I find the wsconsoles have no text on them anymore. They're still active, so I can reboot cleanly, but just can't see anything.

Video card is an ATI rage128 AGP w. 32 MB.
Yes, machdep.allowaperture=2 (also tried =1, same problem).
This happens with or without an xorg.conf file, even just running X, but also startx and xdm; as root or user too.

Anyone had this happen? Or more to the point anyone have a good idea what to do? I can try to post more info as needed.

Thanks for any ideas.
