I have an i915 (00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 
915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)), xorg 7.1 and mesa 

Using AIGLX with either compiz or metacity, switching to vt1 and back to vt7 
causes a hard lockup and i have to hold down the power button..

This doesnt happen using kwin as the window manager so it must be related to 
the compositing.

Someone else in #xorg also confirmed this behaviour.  Has anyone got any 
suggestions (apart from the obvious dont use aiglx:)
