Graphics starts fine, but if I switch to text terminal (Ctrl-Alt F1) and back (Alt-F9) graphics comes back blank. After I kill and restart xorg its starts up fine again.

I first reported this to XOrg, but they claim that this is FreeBSD kernel bug:
This should now work with vt(4).
Can you test a new kernel (either build it yourself, or use an 11-CURRENT or 10.1 snapshot), with "kern.vty=vt" in /boot/loader.conf?
I have another OS installed on it now. So it may take a long time before I can try doing this.
If you are confident this is fixed, then just close it. And I will reopen it in case it wouldn't work if I try again some time in the future.
Presumed fixed with vt(4), submitter cannot easily retest to confirm.
