Description of problem:
On S3 resume, compiz segfaults like this (/var/log/messages):
Jan 26 09:08:24 localhost kernel: compiz: segfault at 397de6e288 ip 0000003cbb63a4b2 sp 00007fff11177d90 error 4 in libglib-2.0.so.0.1800.3[3cbb600000+
This is combined with a brief display of black and white blocks on the screen and a mouse cursor. After that, I am returned to the GDM login prompt.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Suspend/resume via closing lid.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend via closing lid
Compiz crashes, sent back to GDM login screen
Gnome session restored
I'm not sure if this is a pure compiz problem. Bug # 472353 describes similar symptoms, except that I have no problem switching VTs. Also, this bug does not occur with desktop effects switched off.

I should also mention that when I boot with the "nomodeset" flag on (text bootup screen), X locks up on resume.
This issue no longer occurs under Fedora 11 with the following package versions:
I have not tried the "nomodeset" flag since. All works fine without that flag and with graphical bootup.
