  screen becomes black when switching users two times

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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.
