Fatal server error:
Caught signal 7. Server aborting
Appears intermittant... .This crash was about 8 minutes into the clip.
System is Thinkpad X200 with Intel graphics.
Attach output of Xorg.0.log; have no xorg.conf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happened once. Don't know.....
Steps to Reproduce:

Output of "lspic -vv"
A bit more on this....
The above "Xorg crash" left the screen black and unresponsive.
I tried stressing the system by starting another hulu.com video after this, and eventually got the system to "crash" again, but this time the screen did not go black, the cursor continue to move when I moved the mouse, and I continued to hear the audio portion of the video clip (that is, the audio continued to play while the video "froze").
In this state, there were no changes to the display except for displaying movement of the cursor: the cursor did not change when I moved it from window to background to the panel, and clicking had no effect.
Ctrl-alt-FN had no effect as well.
After rebooting to recover the system, I could see nothing in /var/log/messages, /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old nor in ~/.xsession-errors.old ....
Suggestions on how to collect useful info appreciated.
I attach output of "lspci -vv" in case that is useful.
If you can ssh in to the machine when this happens, then dmesg should have something interesting, probably about the GTT bring full.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
