  Fullscreen Freeze.

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I've been having cases of unusual screen behavior, particularly when Kodi 16 is being used (maybe it's just a Kodi thing).
  There have been times before when coming out of fullscreen video using either Chrome or Kodi would drop me to a console screen with no input.
  I think I would be able to kill the gnome session in tty1.

  Now, after a bios upgrade as well as the latest display manager and kernel update, Kodi has frozen in fullscreen a couple of times and yet audio will still play from Kodi.
  I created the bug report in tty1.

  I've also been noticing that if I pause a Kodi video, other non-Kodi applications may not update their window content.
  For example, I may be in a webpage in Chrome and I try to mousewheel scroll, yet not see the scrolling effect. Or I will click on a different tab and the window doesn't show the switch. BUT, if I continue playing the Kodi video, Chrome will update it's screen, and if I switch back to the tab I scrolled, the scroll will have already occurred.

  I will say that I have at least not had a fullscreen GUI crash me out
  to console.

  Another peculiarity is when booting Ubuntu, I used to be able to press ESC to view the kernel/system booting output, but now it just shows a black screen with a cursor.
  The downside to that in 15.04 was I'd lose my mouse cursor when the GUI login screen came up.

  Let me know what other output you'd like (or whatever test you'd like
  me to try) "when" it happens again.
