this depends a *lot* on the video interface. under X, switching back to
a terminal window and then back to X will sometimes cause a complete
reset of the video interface h/w. on my nvidia-driven laptop, for
example, i see the behavior you describe. on other systems i have with
different video interfaces, it does not exist for me.
windows has no equivalent - you cannot toggle in and out of the frame-
buffer based display mode. switching desktops under windows is really
not equivalent in a technological sense to switching between a frame-
buffer controlled X display and a text-driven console.
