Xorg bug

This is 9.0-RELEASE with all else installed via pkg_add. Xorg is 7.5.1; xdm is 
1.1.11. When logging out or terminating Xorg the screen flashes a line that is 
the login pattern at the top of the screen. The rest of the screen is black. 
ctrl-alt-F1 switches to the console but the monitor is disconnected (e.g., I 
eventually get 'no signal' as if the system is powered down). ctrl-alt-F9 
returns to the xdm login which then works normally. I am using xfce and see no 
problems after logging. There are no errors logged in .xsession-errors, 
Xorg.0.log or xdm.log.

I get the same symptoms with and without hal  and when Xorg is started with 
startx or startxfce4. xorg.conf is unmodified from a 'Xorg -configure'. The 
monitor driver select is radeon. The radeonhd driver crashes.

The system is not down, as I can ssh into it,the only real bug is that the 
consoles are not available. I think this is a bug handling the monitor rather 
than the keyboard because of the 'no signal' indication and the ctrl-alt keys 
work, I just can not see whats on the console.

Is additional logging available? Anybody seen one like this?
