Description Daniel Rowe 2008-05-20 05:16:55 EDT

Moving or resizing windows in X casues X to lock up completely. The mouse cursor
still moves. The Ctrl-Alt-Backspace will not quit X. The actual machine is not

'kill -9 <pid>' does reset xorg and are able to log back in.

Using the nv driver with a minimal default xorg.conf file.

Every time.

1. Log into X

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

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

Thanks in advance.
