[Bug 557779] [NEW] "switch from..." option results in lost x sessions


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I'm running Lucid 64bit, installing updates every day. I have two users
on my machine, and I switch between them using the indicator applet.
Sometimes, the switch works without issue. Sometimes, the switched-to
session does not appear, and the screen is black until I find the first
session by trying control-shift-f7, control-shift-f8, etc. Other times,
I switch, the second session does not appear, and I can't find the first
session, either, and I have to restart gdm from control-shift-f1. Still
other times, I can't reach any virtual terminal -- all are black -- and
I have to break out of the situation by ssh'ing in from another machine
on my network.

I realize that this bug may well not be with the indicator applet, but
the applet is where I'm triggering it.
