Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided

in our diagnosis of this issue.

When the anaconda crashes, please, switch to the console (Ctrl+Alt+F2)and cp
/tmp/X* to some other place -- USB stick, some other computervia network, some
on the Internet, and please attach it to the bug report as individual
uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

In T61, can not swtich to console, after ctrl+alt+F2, can not enter into
console because the screen keeps black.

In SDV, sometimes, can swtich to console, sometimes can not. Attachment is the
X related log in /tmp.

Verified in GA in the same machine, not sure if any fixing in GA for this, but 
this bug went away.
