  "switch from..." option results in lost x sessions

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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.
