xorg log

I've seen this from time to time since I switched to UXA+KMS with 2.6.29, and the issue persists with 2.6.31.rc5.

When shutting down X (e.g. "init 3" in a VT), the VT is left in a garbled state.
Presseing a single key generates multiple glyphs on screen, even VT switching isn't possible anymore because it seems the keys aren't mapped correctly.

Comment 2 Clemens Eisserer 2009-08-14 04:38:04 UTC
forgot to mention that the VT corruption seems to happen randomly, I haven't found a way to trigger it reproduceable.
Comment 3 Wang Zhenyu 2009-10-19 23:45:32 UTC
Does this still happen with new linus kernel? or do you need suspend/resume cycle to trigger this?
Comment 4 Clemens Eisserer 2009-10-20 02:28:57 UTC
I haven't it seen lately, but like other obscure bugs which I thought are already fixed, it may just happen anytime soon.
I'll report here if I see it again.

Mark as fixed. Feel free to reopen if you would still meet this one.
