Bug Description

Clean 9.10 64-bit install.

The screen gets corrupted when I;

* Resume from suspend
* Have the background greyed out (for example during the password input dialog)

The attached screenshot is actually garbled by the screenshot app itself; the screen itself looked absolutely fine at the time I took the screenshot! The funny thing is that the garbled screenshot shows exactly the sort of corruption I experience in the other cases (e.g. password input).

Resuming from suspend looks almost normal, except for any text (titlebars, menus, etc.) on the screen being garbled, much in the same blocky manner as the garbled screenshot.

I'd love to make a screenshot of the other cases, but since the screenshot app itself creates garbled output, I can't!

Hi irwjager,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 463959

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
