Ok,

after a lot of compiler and fsck runs and with the kdb-patch from Eric I
narrowed it down to the kdb patch in conjunction with apm. If I enable
apm _and_ the kernel option "Enable console blanking using APM" the
system hangs when switching from X to the console (via CTRL-ALT-F1).

The XFS kernel without kdb is fine.

First I thought it must be the frame-buffer console stuff but it wasn't.

Hope that helps a bit.
