Description of problem:
On a Toshiba Satellite 2595XDVD, when I CTRL-F7 back from a shell, the
screen stays blank and the edges slowly get lighter. I did not let it do
if for long because it looks like it could damange the screen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start and X session.
2. Hit CTRL-F2 to drop to a shell.
3. Hit CTRL-F7 to return to your X session.
4. Watch the screen.
Actual Results: Edges slowly get white.
Expected Results: X Session should be restored.
Severity is high because it looks like it could cause hardware damage.
This was shown to Aaron while at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention.
DO you mean CTRL-ALT-F2, and ALT-F7 to return to X?
Please attach XFree86 server log and X config file using the link

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this defect before next release.

My XFree86 log. This was a brand new one, from a fresh boot.

This has happened twice to me today, using the latest XFree86 and kernel
from up2date. There was nothing of note in XFree86.0.log.
