[Bug 560911] [NEW] Switch user -> Log out -> Black display until reboot


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

[Copycat - A blackscreen can also appear due to a bug in the ATI driver
- workaround involving gnome-screensaver (goto bug #546578)]

Binary package hint: nvidia-graphics-drivers

To reproduce:

1) Choose another user in your FUSA menu.
2) After logging in to that users account, log off.

Expected results: I expect to see GDM
Actual results: I have a black screen

Note: I can still press enter and type my password to log in. I knew
this worked from the sound of my hard-drive. To be certain, on a
subsequent test, I did ALT+F2 and ran "touch testfile". After a reboot,
there was a file called 'testfile' in my home directory. But all this
was performed with a black screen.
