I am in a similar situation. If gdm is running, logout from a gnome session gives
me a garbled screen. But everything is ok if I use slim login manager.
I can switch from X to console by ctrl-alt-Fn. But switch back from console to
X hangs the whole system. :( Probably, this is the fault of ati fglrx driver, because
when I use radeon driver that comes with xorg, everything is fine.
