Subject[2.6.25-rc6] possible regression: X server dying
In the five days since I booted a 2.6.25-rc6 kernel on my development
machine, it has happened three times already that I came back to the
machine to find that the X server had exited, killing all applications
that still had a window open. This has never happened with previous
kernel versions (2.6.22.17, 2.6.24.3, 2.6.25-rc5), so I suspect some
relation to the latest rc kernel.

Syslog entries around the time of the crash (identical each time):

(The translation of the German error message from gdm is:
"Serious X error - restarting :0"
The German language messages from gconfd are probably not important,
as they appear identically during a regular X logout/login cycle.)

I'm at a loss where to start investigating this. Bisecting appears
impractical given the error happens about every other day with no
obvious triggering condition (except me being afk for a longer time.)

Configuration: Pentium D940, 2 GB RAM, Intel 965 chipset, Matrox
G550 PCIe graphics adapter, openSUSE 10.3 32 bit install.

Ideas?

Thanks
Tilman
