Comment 1 Ondrej Zary 2009-09-11 11:22:49 UTC
This happens only when two monitors are attached to the card. The background is not random, it's simply uninitialized - random on cold boot, part of previous VRAM content after reboot.

Comment 2 Ondrej Zary 2009-09-11 11:27:21 UTC
It does not happen when kernel mode setting is disabled. So it only happens with two monitors and KMS.
