I am running archlinux with the following setup:

-X.Org X Server 1.12.0 Release Date: 2012-03-04
-[    92.210] (II)         Composite (RENDER acceleration)
 [    92.211] (II) Initializing built-in extension COMPOSITE
-02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV710
[Radeon HD 4350]
-AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200
-[    2.162616] [drm] radeon kernel modesetting enabled
[    2.164537] [drm] initializing kernel modesetting (RV710 0x1002:0x954F
-Openbox 3.5.0

The problem occurs when you switch to a VT while having a window open (a
terminal or a browser, etc), login, and run htop for example and then you
return to X. You will see all your windows have got black (and unusable).
