I started X. As root I killed X. Keyboard, etc., all locked.
I logged in over the network and restarted X. Everything worked,
including ctl-alt-backspace which got me out of X with a usable
keyboard. `stty sane` and `stty rows 24` fixed up about averything.

Aparently X doesn't put everything back the way it found it when
it exits. Instead, it puts everything back the way is should be.

This means you can recover from an X fatality if you have access
