I have also seen this, only twice, both in the past week or so. I suspend an resume 3 or 4 times per day, so this is fairly rare. I am on Thinkpad X230, with i7-3520M with Intel HD Graphics 4000.
Fedora 23 x86-64
Xorg 1.18.1-3.fc23
mesa 11.1.0-2.20151218.fc23
xorg-x11-drv-intel 2.99.917-19.20151206

Logging out and in again seemed to fix it.
