Description of problem:
Using the standard text console, if X is restarted the systems hangs solid. This
is especially annoying at setup, when X is started to complete the firstboot
agent and then started again once the system has finished booting.
If the vesafb is used (ie. boot with vga=0x318 for a 24bit/1024x768 framebuffer
console), no such hangs happen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start x
2. terminate x
3. start x again
Actual Results: hard lock. Not possible to SSH in, sysrq non-functional.
Expected Results: X should have started normally
