Subjectkill -9 <pid of X>
Hello guys,

Yes, it *is* very much a kernel issue. What happens if you kill -9 the X
server? The machine hangs because the kernel does not sanify the
console/VT, i.e. switch it back to the text mode of the VT whence the X
server was started.

I am not sure how to approach it in Linux but someone ought to look at it,
I think.
