OK then at that point the X-server is functioning normally. Would
it be possible to do the following?
1. Reboot the system to get to the login screen.
2. From a second system, ssh into the failing system, become root,
and "tail -f /var/log/Xorg.0.log" to see what was last entered.
3. Login from the GUI on failing system and then check the tail to
see if the "AIGLX: Suspending AIGLX clients for VT switch" appears
at that point.
I did as described. In this case, the default target was graphical.
The last thing in Xorg.0.log are messages about the keyboard hotkeys.
After I entered my password, the KDE splash screen appeared with a
working cursor. But instead of going to a black screen, it stayed on
the splash screen. The Xorg.0.log did not change until I switched to
VT2, then it showed both AIGLX suppended and resuming when I switched
back to the hung VT1.
