I have noticed a strange phenomenon when I try to reboot my Ubuntu pc. I have a multi monitor configuration with a Radeon HD6870 graphic card and when I reboot my pc I can see at the start-up of the OS the images of the application previously used!

They are only pics like a wallpaper but few instants after these images disappear.

Why does this happens?

Updating: when the monitor turns on again I can see it to flicker with three horizontal bars. I have to turn the monitor off and back on in order to update the sync with the graphic card.

Does the problem remain in 12.04 or 12.10? – Alvar Mar 14 '13 at 14:32
