I had the exact same experience. my wife and I switch a lot. I changed
from nouveau to nvidia and my problem _mostly_ went away. Its only happened
to me once since, so I assumed that was the problem/fix. Unfortunately,
I've trained the wife on the ctrl+alt+bksp so now I don't know how often
she has the issue.
Release: I had the issue on f16 (I skipped 15, so can not speak to that)

the bug I found was: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=739361
but i don't know if that is the one OP was referring to.
