Bug Description

Hi,
This problem started happening after upgrading from when I upgraded from Hardy to Lucid 10.04 LTS.
I have the black screen when switching between users.
The problem doesn't happen immediately, but only after a few switches, or after a certain amount of time, in fact it's pretty unpredictable.
If you require further information, please don't hesitate to ask (you may need to give instructions as to how to obtain this info as I'm a relative newbie)

I was asked to create this new bug report in Bug #290704. The symptoms of this bug look the same, but for a different graphics card.

(n.b. I was unable to report bug using $ ubuntu-bug -p nvidia-graphics-drivers-173, as it failed with "Package nvidia-graphics-drivers-173 does not exist")

Simon.

apport info was collected after rebooting just after the problem occurred.
Other observations:
 - I can normally guess when the problem is going to occur as the system appears slow.
 - Sometimes the monitor goes on standby, sometimes it just goes black.
 - It can occur when logging-off as well as switching user.

Is there any news about this one? My Lucid is up-to-date and the problem still occurs.
