(Maybe kernel is the right component, rather?)
Description of problem:
When starting an extra X server (:1), the original server (:0) crashes when one
returns to it by closing :1. Also, switching virtual console to :0 while :1 is
running crashes both servers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F9 preview x86_64, update, reboot.
2. Log in.
3. Either use fast user switch or su and "startx -- :1"
