Hm, very encouraging -- this might be the same problem that has been
bugging me (with 4.1.0-17).  If I do C-A-F1 from within X, the virtual
console comes up OK, but if I do A-F7 to get back into X, my (laptop
LCD) screen "melts" to white.  I'm not sure that the X server is
crashed though, because I can type commands into the terminal window
in X; e.g. "chvt 1" will flip me back to a virtual console, and
C-A-Backspace will exit X.  I have the same problem when waking X up
from sleep -- melted white screen.

I didn't used to have this problem on this machine, when it used the
old svga driver under 3.x (but then the display was horribly slow).

Does this sound like your problem?  I also have a Trident Cyberblade
in this Acer 340T.
