[Bug 570687] [NEW] screen becomes black when switching users two times


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: gdm

Steps to reproduce (asusming that there are users A, B, C):
1) Boot the system
2) Login as A
3) Switch to B using the fast switch applet
4) Enter the password for B
5) Switch to A using the fast switch applet
6) The display where the unlock dialog should appear is black (sometimes still visible but with only 20 or 10% opacity, so it's nearly unreadable). No way to get it bright again.
