When I restore from hibernate the screen is often corrupted. I suspect the graphics memory is not being saved. Suspend-to-ram works fine.

It also looks like the font-cache is corrupted, as all letters are corrupted consistently.

Logging out and back in again fixes it, but I don't want to have to do that. I have been logging-out then hibernating, but this is more effort and eliminates most of the benefit of hibernate.

Is there another way to refresh the X11 display? The Ctrl+Alt+F1 ... does not work. It switches back to X11 instantly, but still corrupted

I am using Debian 6

Yes logging-out and back in again fixes it. Am I miss understanding this as I believe that these are 2 ways to quickly and inelegantly log-out. As I am trying to avoid logging out this will not be of help.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver to start with.... maybe something got hosed up in the configuration of it somehow that is cause Hibernate to bork up the system? Anyway, I'd start there....
