When I restart my display manager (GDM) from tty0, I get a corrupted 
image where parts of the X display before I restarted GDM become visible 
on both the newly started X server instance as on tty0. When moving the 
mouse in X, the current (correct) image around the cursor is replaced by 
the image which was shown before X was started.
