SubjectVT crashing with XFree86-4.2
I've been using XFree86-4.2 with a Rage128 lately.
It often hangs in a way that looks like the
virtual termnial is dying. After the hang, I can
restart X (from a remote terminal), but I can no
longer access any text VTs.

Maybe the text consoles aren't dead, but
the video card can no longer be reset to text mode?
Maybe I should try it with an FB console?

Here's a traceback of XFree86:
