Well, I do not necessarily think that renicing X is the problem. Just
an idea.

We do have a problem, though. Nearly indefinite starvation and all sort
of weird effects like bash not able to create a new process... its a
bug.

Renicing X, aside from some weird client-server starvation issues with
stuff like multimedia programs, should not cause any problem. It should
help, in fact. But, you are right, its not needed in the current
scheduler.
