From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Gecko/20031030 Galeon/1.3.10

Description of problem:
When I log out of a GNOME session, I get a blank screen with
only the cross cursor in it. After that everything hangs.
I can however do CTRL-ALT-BS, and gdm restarts properly.
I am using the NVIDIA driver 4496.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-2.4.4.5-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login GNOME session
2. Log out the normal way

I experienced the same problem, with NVidia cards, but only with
Xinerama enabled. The same problem as described above happens with
XFree's default driver and NVidia's one. The only way I found to
unlock the machine is to ssh from another machine and reboot. 

Note that the problem happens (on my machine) :

  - Only when logging out from KDE or Gnome. Killing the X server with
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace returns correctly to GDM. Lauching a "terminal
only" session and logging out from the terminal also works well (as
long as Gnome or KDE isn't launched from the terminal).

  - Only when using Xinerama. I have three displays, and everything
works very well as long as Xinerama is disabled (three distinct displays).

  - With GDM and KDM as well.

  - With XFree's default driver and NVidia's one as well.

Here is my configuration :

AGP NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX
PCI NVIDIA TNT2 (1)
PCI NVIDIA TNT2 (2)
Intel Celeron on MSI motherboard
