Does this also happen if you kill X during the test, itself, before selecting
'Cancel' or 'Test'? Ctl+Alt+Bkspc is supposed to be the built-in 'escape
hatch' for when you get a 'black screen of death' instead of the test screen.
It's supposed to drop you to command line instead of leaving you blind and/or
locked up.

Please send copies (direct; too much for the list) of:
the current /etc/X11/xorg.conf
** note: copy these into an empty working directory and append the suffix
'.txt' to them.

Also the results of:
** note: adjust the path to 'land' these files in the same working directory
as above.

lsmod -v > /home/greg/lsmod.txt
lspci -v > /home/greg/lspci.txt
cat /proc/interrupts > /home/greg/interrupts.txt

change into the working directory containing the above files and do:
tar -czf *.txt gregdiag.tar.gz

This will zip the up into a nice small package for mailing.
