That's not what's causing the crash. Are there any other error messages?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-02-19 02:37:56 EST
Actually, this is a known problem which I am currently investigating,
however I would appreciate beta tester feedback on a new X build
which contains debugging information in the X server log for this
issue, as that is needed to try and pinpoint the problem, and wether
it is a bug in the X keyboard code, or a kernel ioctl bug.  I suspect
it is an XFree86 bug, but need the debugging information to know
for sure what the problem is, before attempting to fix it.
