Attempt to switch back to graphical session from TTY causes severe freeze.
I had this problem on two machines both with amdgpu and nvidia drivers.
On the machine with nvidia drivers hard reboot was the only option.
With amdgpu I was able to switch to another TTY and kill xorg.

Additional info:
Package version: 21.1.2-1
It seems that that is the same bug:

Steps to reproduce:
Start graphical session, switch to TTY, try to switch back.

This task depends upon
