This worked perfectly on my old notebook, where I can switch
back to text mode now.

On my new notebook where Grub2 runs, I noticed yet another
correlation. The problem exists only when I reboot by a
Ctrl-Alt-Del or by a "shutdown -r". When switching off and
on again, the text mode ist entered correctly in both sc and
vt modes.

Maybe I will detect further effects in daily use.
Thank you so far.
