  Switch user -> Log out -> Black display until reboot

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  [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.
