    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
    from the network.
