[Bug 370113] [NEW] Blank screen, machine hangs, on logout

Public bug reported:

Using KDM, when I log out of my KDE session I get a blank screen.
Pressing 'Alt F1' or 'Ctrl Alt F1' does not get me a virtual terminal.
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace seems to do nothing (not even disk activity).  My
only option is to reboot.  This happens every time.

If I use GDM, this does not occur, hence I'm putting this as a KDM bug,
but that might be the wrong package.

I have been using Jaunty pre-releases and continuously updating for
several months, and this wasn't happening a few weeks ago. I cannot pin
down exactly when it started happening (since I don't actually just log
out that often).

I'm using an ATI graphics card, with the open source radeon driver.

Xorg logs shows a crash.

Extract below:
