Description of problem:
X crashes, throwing one out into the gdm ghetto,
after some time of just running screensavers (every day or so).
The problem seems to be reliably triggered by the antspotlight
OpenGL screensaver. It is likely triggered by other OpenGL programs,
but not all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(also happens with the current fc13 xscreensaver-gl-extras)
run antspotlight -root
(doesn't seem to happen without -root)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start up x
2. /usr/libexec/xscreensaver/antspotlight -root
3. feel the pain
x crashes, kicked out to gdm (or in my case, xdm)
pretty ant-y screensaving goodness and a rock solid X server, more like F12
I will attach Xorg.0.log.old (Xorg.0.log is the not-yet-crashed-current X)

Xorg.0.log.old showing crash
To find crash, search for "Backtrace:" in the log.
By the way, it seems appropriate to up this to a severity "high" bug, since crashing X is unpleasant, and having it crash randomly sometime over 24 hours is particularly unpleasant. (However, the 24 hour random crash only happens with the 3rd party xscreensaver-gl-extras package added.)
(Sorry, it's not clear that I can elevate bug severity once I file the bug.)

I have formerly had this problem on an Averatec 3280 laptop running various Ubuntu versions, and reported it as Ubuntu Launchpad bug #455954.
I recently installed Fedora 13 instead, and experience the same lockup as described above. The relevant packages are
$ rpm -qa | grep xscreensaver-gl

Peter, your bug is assuredly not this bug. The VIA and Intel 3D drivers are wildly different.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
