I've been playing with this, and found forcing a reset of the Xv registers after a mode-switch seems to help this problem.

The debdiff, sources and a .deb are at:

I'm not an Ubuntu or X.Org developer, so treat these as what they are.. unofficial and only tested by myself.

The package also has a possible fix / workaround for LP #127101, the "grey blocks" crash on VT switch. (I continued from Bryce's fine work debugging that).
