<alt><ctrl>F7 buggy


Switching back to Gnome from a virtual terminal sometimes goes to a blank screen. I can then switch back to a text terminal but Gnome does not want to load. It's kind of a hassle to restart X if this happens (e.g. if there are applications running in X with unsaved work on them). What could be some causes/solutions of this problem?

I had a similar issues long back and I remember somebody refered me to SVGATextMode utility to solve this problem. I don't exactly remember the details. But then my vendor released a new version of Xorg and my problem was sovled.
