I have experianced an X windows freeze but am unable to reproduce it, it's
only happened to me twice (once on 2.1.59 and once on 2.1.62) both times
it faled to return to text mode on exit and left me with a locked local
console. I was forced to telnet from another machine and do a
proper shutdown, and simply wait for the HD light to stop blinking.

My system is a Pentium 120 w/16 megs ram.
My video card is a generic Art-64V+ (S3 Trio+) w/ 1 meg on board
