It seems this is a bug in Xorg. I can replicate this in KDE and XFCE. However I couldn't find anything that looked related to this in Xorg.0.log. Which package should I file this bug against?

The problem seems to have gone away since I switched drivers from Radeonhd to catalyst. However I tested on Radeon test day with the live CD for Rawhide (F12), and it passed the test where I needed to switch to VTs several times. So I guess this issue is resolved in the next release.
