I just tried that method.  At first, it seemed to work wonderfully -
system seemed to come back up, screen working, but then it went
somewhat haywire - keyboard and mouse (touchpad) seemed to work, and I
could switch windows via Alt-Tab, but no window / application
(including my terminal emulator) would accept any keyboard input - the
window would just stop responding and stop refreshing.
