This has happened in natty more than once. Once the screen gets locked after long periods of no keyboard/mouse activity (all ok for short periods of time), I don't even get back the familiar unlock screen with password.

I get a blank screen and then I have to do a ctrl-alt-f7

Is this a known issue in natty? Or is this a gnome bug ?



Thanks,
Dinshaw
