Your video card is checking to see if you have anything connected to the TV output. To do that, it needs to temporarily unplug the VGA. You can avoid this by ignoring the TV output. Add this to your xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor" Identifier "TV" Option "Ignore" "True" EndSection Section "Device" Option "monitor-TV" "TV" EndSection
