Description Brent Michalski 2001-08-13 18:57:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010725

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.

How reproducible:
Always

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.

Additional info:

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
below, as well as the output of:

lspci -v

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

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