This sounds a lot like this commit from upstream drm:

commit 2a1292fd4cf1558b4a60781227d503c9111d9075
Author: Chris Wilson <>
Date:   Sun Dec 5 19:21:18 2010 +0000

    drm/i915/lvds: Always restore panel-fitter when enabling the LVDS
    Linus Torvalds pointed out that our code was unbalanced when powering on
    the panel with respect to the power off sequence in that we were failing
    to restore the panel-fitter. The consequence of this would be that
    across a simple DPMS off/on for a non-native mode, without an intervening
    modeset, the panel fitter would remain disabled and the output would shift
    on the panel.

Do you see this issue with an upstream 3.6 kernel?  6.4's DRM will be rebasing to 3.6 + fixes.
Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2012-10-10 10:17:04 EDT
DRM rebase has been merged containing the above fix, and will be included in RHEL 6.4  If you can still reproduce this issue on an upstream 3.6 kernel (Fedora 18, for example), please reopen this issue.
