Here are links to the gnome and (unofficial) amd bugs that seem relevant:


It seems related to GNOME enabling EGL/Wayland support. The first
version of clutter-1.0 with EGL support enabled that migrated to testing
was 1.18.0-2. It came to testing in the beginning of April. That was
around the time I first got a black screen instead of gdm3.
As a workaround I switched to the free radeonsi driver. I checked today
that the current set of packages in testing still has this problem.
