    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.
