Have _another_ crash in X (XFree 3.1.1 XF86_SVGA server on a 1.2.13 kernel).
This is the 3rd in a week (already posted the first two :-|) - although
this time we did manage a whole 2 days uptime (X is left running all the time).
No rxvts were running this time tho... just a bunch of xterms and netscape...

Everything locks up - no keyboard, mouse or anything ... tho sendmail did
fire off 7 seconds after this crash (to rebuild alias table)...

Systems is a 486DX2-50, 2xIDE drives, running PPP and a little NFS (for me
to play with - nothing is actually served to/from it). We have gcc 2.5.8,
libc-4.5.26 and are running totally a.out. As far as X goes, it's running
on a CL-5434...
