Description Fred New 2004-03-23 18:16:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
I was closing a few extra windows on my Gnome session.  When I exited
Gnome terminal, my screen went black and my keyboard and mouse no
longer worked.  SSH was still available, so I filed this bug while the
system was still running.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
I don't know how to reproduce this.  I had the same symptoms last
night too, but I thought it was my screensaver failing to recover. 
That is, I went away from the computer for a while and when I came
back everything was black and the keyboard and mouse wouldn't revive

Actual Results:  Black screen, unresponsive keyboard and mouse.

Expected Results:  Continued flawless graphical environment.

Additional info:  I'm hoping to attach XFree86.0.log as soon as I
commit this bug.

Both bugs end in SEGV, but on different hardware.  It's possible
they're related, but there's not enough info yet to conclude they're

Can you try disabling selinux and exec-shield, by:

- booting with selinux=0
- echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield

Does the crash still happen after this?
