With kernel 2.6.32rc7 and xorg-edgers' intel driver (2.9.0+git), I could switch to a console (tty1), and dump kernel messages after the GPU hang (and reboot properly).

It seems that by default, the Gnome screen resolution menu sets external monitor to extended at right, which could break with compiz enabled if the with is greater than 2048. But what I don't understand is why does it hang when I just run "xrandr" command after hotplugging the monitor? (without setting up the external monitor yet)
