Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach

* your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available),
* output of the dmesg command,
* system log (/var/log/messages), and
* X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log)

After the second bootup everything works as expected?

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

After the second boot it does not work as expected. It works like described in bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=585111

No /etc/X11/xorg.conf at all.
