Description of problem:
Summary basically provides whole story. Switched on desktop-effects and when triaging bug 471353 I tried to prove that switching between console and X just works, I got black screen on returning to X :-). Computer was not dead and mouse was moving, but aside from the mouse cursor the screen was totally black.

I was able to connect to the computer via ssh from other computer. When trying to gdb --pid=$(pidof Xorg) gdb was begun to start, printed "attaching to the process XXXXX (no debuginfo) ..." and then it froze completely.

Of course, I have no /etc/X11/xorg.conf

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

How reproducible:
happened once

Steps to Reproduce:
1.desktop-effects on
2.Alt+Ctrl+2, Alt+Ctrl+7, Alt+Ctrl+1
Actual results:
black screen with mouse cursor moving

Expected results:
lovely Xorg display with Firefox where I could continue explaining to the reporter that our Xorg Just Works™

I would almost forget

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 05:20:37 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

*** Bug 473489 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 6 Vitaly Bordug 2008-11-28 20:13:54 UTC
I would add, that not only gdb lead to total freeze, chvt (iirc) did similar result. Or killing X, not sure...

Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2009-04-24 05:12:58 UTC
This has evaporated somewhere.
