Bug Description

Unable to reproduce due to the randomness and unpredictability of the bug, though I was dragging something with the mouse at the time, and the dragging cursor was layered onto the log.
Dragging an image, then bam! Suddenly the screen goes black, like it's sleeping, but then the boot-up log appears (The one that displayed when [Esc] is pressed at the Plymouth screen), and the cursor is overlayed onto the log. It looks like the log is static.
