Confirmed, it happened again.  Can see a very feint outline of icons
on the desktop after a restore.  The Brightness is turned all the way
up. This is the third time I have tried to reproduce it, all times the
backlight has failed to turn back on.

This does not happen with patch #6

I am running an Ibook G4 1ghz
Fedora Core Rawhide ( as of today )
and Dwmw2's  kernel from his repository.
