Description Mark Heslep 2003-11-21 18:14:24 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031022 Firebird/0.7 StumbleUpon/1.89

Description of problem:
W/ dual heads running, and only with dual heads, the logout process
locks up the desktop.  Only resorting to Ctl-Alt-Bkspace will return
the console and thus hard killing any apps up w/o saving session data.
Im running two panels - top and bottom.

I'm using the radeon driver for X.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure X for dual head 
2.Start Menu->LogOut

Actual Results:  Desktop locks up, requiring a hard ctrl-alt-bk to
return the console

Expected Results:  Gnome session and X should terminate w/o error and
return the console screen

Additional info:

More detail:

1. Lock up is intermittent, not always.
2. App windows can still be moved w/ the mouse but wont accept
keyboard input.  
3. The panels completely lock up. No pop ups on mouse over icon, nothing.
4. The exit, clean or hard w/ ctl-alt-bk, leaves these processes running: 
/usr/libexec/bonobo-activation-server --ac-activate --ior-output-fd=18
gaim --session <long string...>

5. These messages reported to the console VT1:
Saving session: gnome-terminal

This is happening on a fresh install I'm doing on a Pent4 on i845G
motherb.  Not a dual-head setup!  All the rest is essentially the same
as above.

Comment 3 Mark Heslep 2003-12-05 23:12:03 EST
Well I've been keeping up with the FC1 updates every couple of days
and somewhere along the way the problem cleared up. Logouts are clean now.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2003-12-18 13:14:39 EST
Is this problem the same issue reported in bug #109598?  If so, or
if you think it is similar, please reassign to XFree86.

There is additional talk that has occurred recently on the fedora

I have a Dell D600 Laptop with ATI Mobility 9000 graphics card.  When
I dock the system, I have 2 displays - laptop, external monitor.  The
laptop resolution is 1400x1050, while the external monitor is
1280x1024.  When I try to log out, I get a black screen.  If I
remotely log in, and kill the X server, I am presented with the gdm
login display.

If I set the laptop resolution to 1280x1024, then logout works fine.
