Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER", awaiting X.Org bug URL

clean fresh fc5t3 install with X + Gnome
thanks, `startx` is ok now.

$ diff xorg.conf-pmg5-ati xorg.conf-pmg5-ati-fc5t3

switching from X=tty7 to an other tty  eg. with alt+ctrl+f1
==> black screen, no keyboard and X is lost once again
xorg\* gnome\* are up2date with yum

bug at freedesktop.org will follow

"switch/logout/shutdown/...  from X --> black screen and no keyboard - RV350 AP

Have caind of similar thing with latest test 3 release.
Radeon 9550
After installation monitor displayed message unsupported resolution (1280x1024
?), then only black screen. After few resets i was able to kill X server, login 
via console.
Changed driver to vesa, started X, changed driver to ati again.
Changed resolution to 1024x768 - now it works, but only for 1024, any other 
resolution do not display a thing, just black screen.
