If you are using the intel driver, maybe you could run with ModeDebug(?)

I do not know what is going on and I am just stabbing in the dark. But
if the monitor turns black, maybe you can run xrandr before and after it

If this does not turn out to be of any help, I will suggest, that you
open an upstream bug report [1].

Bests and good luck,
