X won't restore text mode -- what to do

When I end my X session, the screen stays in graphics mode.  The
only thing I can do is reboot.  Arh!

Also, what do I use as a .xsession and Xdefaults?

I have found (ET4000) that my text mode is only restored properly if I

This also happens if you run X without the required kernel - at least
