(Matrox G100)XServer hangs on shut down from KDE

Description of problem:
I did a completely clean install of 7.1 on an HP Vectra VE with a Matrox
Occasionally on system shutdown I have a complete system freeze. Before
the freeze, the screen clears, blinks a few times as normal, then locks
with a half blank screen, half random coloured pixels scrolling up the
screen. The keyboard, mouse On reboot I normally have major disk errors
to clear up.
I have not (yet) applied patches to the RH 7.1 install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the machine, with KDE as standard desktop
Actual Results: Problem happens irregularly--1 out of 5 times.
Other times the machine does not display the deamon shutdown, but displays
a RH splash screen and shuts down.
Expected Results: Machine shutdown
I wonder if this could be a timing issue, with some services needing
proper time to disconnect / shut down? That could be jsut my ignorance,
Do you use the graphical boot (runlevel 5) or do you boot into text mode
(runlevel 3) and use startx?
I start in runlevel 5 (graphical login).
The machine is pretty much vanilla at the moment, and I am willing to assist in
experimenting / trying things.
Does it do that, if you use startx instead of booting into runlevel 5?
Can you attach X server logs, and config files? Also, please attach
kernel log /var/log/messages from after a hang. Please trim it down
to the last 10 screens or so of useful info.
Closing bug due to long term inactivity with no response.
