An X server segfault is automatically X's fault.

Could you still reproduce the bug even after relabelling your disk?
dtardon->mcepl: No, it's OK now.
dtardon->mcepl: Taking back comment 6: it still crashes when run without xorg.conf. However, it doesn't crash with the following xorg.conf.

Reopening. The bug this one was made duplicate of is, according to comments, fixed in xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.6.99-28, but X still crashes on my machine with xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.6.99-41.20090825.fc12.
Rawhide now features gnome-session-2.28.0-1.fc12 and xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.7.0-1.fc12. Is this still present?
Installing X's debugging symbols and running a gdb session would be helpful.
it works now with xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.7.0-1.fc12 and gnome-session-2.28.0-1.fc12
It should be closed then, right?
yes, it can be closed
