This bug only freezes the system when I click "Apply" in Display
Preferences after trying to change which monitor I'm using.  Cycling
monitor output with Fn + F5 will also cause a freeze.  When frozen, I
will get a black screen and (sometimes) an unresponsive mouse cursor.
There's still hard drive activity and audio, but the freeze is fatal.

It doesn't come up very often, it seems like it only causes a problem
once you've switched back and forth between the external monitor and
laptop's monitor a few times.

I'm using an Acer Aspire One AOD250 netbook, GNOME, Ubuntu Karmic 9.10.
