Exactly what happens when leaving X.  Sometimes it's a blank screen and 
the user can type 'startx'.  That is due to KMS.

xfce uses it, but I can't recall if it is required.  But it would not 
cause this type of problem anyway.

Please stop uninstalling and reinstalling stuff.  If that were broken, 
it would not work at all.
