Description of problem:
when suspending my laptop to ram, then resuming, it works most of the time. however, other times when it coems back, there's no dialog to enter my passwordto unlock the session.
i can ssh into the machine and do 'gdm-restart', which gets me back to a login - this would be a problem whenever i don't have ssh access though.
i'm using some propriatory modules at the moment, but others made no difference or were worse(1).
1. using ipw3945 instead of iwl3945. iwl3945 seems to give increadibly slow throughput on my network, whereas ipw3945 is fine.
using iwl3945, i see lots of "iwl3945: REPLY_ADD_STA failed".
adding iwl3945 to SUSPEND_MODULES hangs the suspend when starting.
2. binary nvidia driver - no difference if using nv.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.try to unlock screen
when the bug pops up, i get an X screen (with usable mouse cursor but no keyboard), and networking (i can ssh into the box)
i should get a black screen with gnome-screensavers unlock dialog.

this is my hardware profile.
Apologies - more testing on this and i'm pretty sure it's not related to fedora,
using the nvidia module and resuming from pm-suspend:
compiz + gtk-window-decorator: ok
i'll file a bug at beryl, sorry - changing settings so much meant i didn't test
Closing as NOTABUG, as per previous comment.
