Description Sebastien Bacher 2015-08-24 14:15:14 UTC
The bug has been reported on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/1421575

"Thinkpad X220 running vivid up to date.

Usually sits in docking station with external monitor.

Today I ran the laptop outside the docking station, and plugged it into the dock while running (which worked fine forever on utopic) but today it now freaks out.

I deleted ~/.config/monitors.xml to reset my display config

I restarted and logged in with both monitors active.

As soon as I change the display config doing the display corrupts, flickers and becomes unusable.

Similar corruption happens using an inspiron 11 3138 config on wily, when connecting a projector with hdmi the screen corrupts and things don't recover until the session is restarted

the syslog has those warnings
"kernel: [ 2006.138268] i915 0000:00:02.0: BAR 6: [??? 0x00000000 flags 0x2] has bogus alignment"
