More XFree86 4.2.0 problmes: on my desktop pc (where the mouse is
working fine because of missing 3-button emulation?) the screen
won't be restored after it goes into power saving mode. For example
this morning when I came to work the screen was blank and moving the
mouse or pressing shift didn't help. I was able to press Ctrl+Alt+F2
and login (blind) as root and reboot. So obviously this is a problem
related to XFree.

Anyone else having this problem? This appeared after 4.1.0 -> 4.2.0
