I don't know how to prevent it from occurring, but I know how to solve
it once it happens, as I have the same problem with my laptop. Sometimes
when I go from X to console mode, the screen garbles up. The same thing
happens if I close the lid on my laptop and open it while in X. The
solution: in console mode, close the lid and open it again.
This works for me, at least. I have no idea how to prevent it from
occurring, though. Have you tried the XFree mailing lists?
