No, no, the video gets messed up after hibernate only.
I get two behaviors: either the X server starts and it can't redraw
windows properly (i.e. xterm background is all black, windows are not
redrawn when moved), or after 6 tries the X server stops and tell me
gdm is disabled. Sometimes even in text mode the display is garbled.

OK. You are right, I thought it was working yesterday, and today I got
the same problem again.

I meant, I thought I could do more than one hibernate cycle in a row
without crashing the video. I think I did 4 cycles before it crashed
this morning.

Just normal text. How to use intelfb?

What other information do you think would help?
