Fill up the root partition of your computer, reboot, and try to start X from runlevel 3 - it hangs, and locks the display, keyboard and mouse.

It seems to be an xfs issue; just removing some files before starting X doesn't fix the problem, removing some files, then restarting xfs and then starting X does.

Happens for me on XF4.0.1 (from 7.0), x86, Matrox G200.
