Not always i get a blank screen. It's random.
Comment 2 Adam Huffman 2007-06-22 07:10:22 EDT
I've just seen the same symptom - an entirely white screen when I switched back
to the primary user, who had compiz enabled.
Comment 3 Deji Akingunola 2007-07-28 23:52:36 EDT
Are you both using the nvidia proprietary driver? I've seen such scenario occur
with the said driver, you can blindly type your user's password (and press
'Enter') to get back into your running session.

Im using nvidia proprietary driver and yes... i blindly type my password and
screen back to reallity :) ("active" blank screen)...

You can close this bug then ;). It's not F-U-S-A's fault but an nvidia's driver bug.
