With KMS on, my screen flickers every 20sec or so.  Tried with no 
xorg.conf and the same thing.  I even got some sort of yellow/orange 
screen of death.  I did not use KMS with 2.6.31 so this may not be 
kernel related.  I'll look into it later but disabling kms from the grub 
prompt works fine...

As an aside, how do you see the resolution for the tty's with KMS? 
Native is really too high a resolution for me.
