Bug#140277: svgalibg1: lock when switching VCs rapidly

Package: svgalibg1
Version: 1:1.4.3-6
Severity: important

To reproduce:
- launch zgv
- switch virtual consoles away and back to zgv very quickly, repeatedly
The system locks completely.

You can also use splaymidi.  (But applications which "take" alt or f1 or
something won't be able to reproduce this.)

If I try and reproduce this bug on Debian potato (different machine), zgv will
abort and svgalib will dump this error:
Error at Acquire.
This should not happen. Please tell matan@svgalib.org about it

I have a Cirrus Logic GD 5446 graphics card.

This may or may not be related to other complete system lockups I got while
running Quake or Lincity and jumping around virtual consoles.
