    Subject2.5.37 won't run X?
    X won't start on 2.5.37, but works with 2.5.36
    The screen goes black as usual, but then nothing else happens.
    ssh'ing in from another machine shows XFree86 using 50% cpu,
    i.e. one of the two cpu's in this machine.

    killing the XFre86 process is impossible, even with kill -9
    from root. sysrq SAK worked though, so I could recover
    the machine. But I had to boot a different kernel to run X.
