I'm encountering the same problem (on the same hardware too), except my Xorg.log after the crash seems different (attached). Also, rarely, this problem occurs on the first boot (no need to logout and login), and this seems to be more likely to happen if the boot is after a power off & on cycle used to get from previous crash.

This bug has disappeared after the recent bunch of Fedora 9 updates (kernel 2.6.26-3.29, does not look like there was any change in Xorg packages). If the other reporter sees the same, the bug can be closed.
