XF86_SVGA dims console

I've just upgraded my Linux installation to Redhat 5.0. This included installing a new version of XFree86.
The new X server (XF86_SVGA version 3.3.1 running on a Tseng ET4000) works fine, but it turns down the brilliance on my text-based virtual consoles.

If I kill X to go back to a text-based console, I can
barely read the text because the brilliance is so low, even if I turn the brilliance on my display to maximum.

My old XF86_SVGA (version 3.1.2) didn't have this problem.

Is this a well-known problem? What can I do?

cto, in the Section "Device" of XF86Config, add Ramdac "normal".
