Description of problem:
When quitting an certain games, (I think it's related to OpenGL) a X crashes and
therefore terminates the session.

2. Change resolution settings (not absolutely needed, but works best to make the
3. Restart the game either by having do it for you (the case of SuperTux) or by
clicking 'Exit'. On my computer, X crashes here and I don't get a change to
start the game again as the session was terminated.
Actual results:
X crashes, Gnome /KDE session terminated

Expected results:
X doesn't crash

Additional info:
I'm on a 64MB nVidia card, but using the 'nv' driver.

Please attach /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old after triggering the crash; it should list
a backtrace at the bottom of the file.

I can't seem to reproduce it now, but I've also done an update to
xorg-x11-server-xorg - I think we can close this as RAWHIDE...
