    Some bug plonks the X server hard, the user (jumps to another VT|logs
    in from another box) and kill -15 X, no result, same user now uses
    kill -9, graphics card jams.

    This is a very likely scenario given the size of the X executable (the
    bug can easily be in a dynamically loaded module like GLX).

    OG.
