Description of problem:
When closing X (properly, or with ctrl-alt-backspace, or killall -9 X), not the

the keyboard is still ok but the printing is "laggy". If i press enter
continuously some garbage text appears...

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. startx
2. Do some stuff.
3. ctrl-alt-back.

RHL 8.0 did not ship with a 2.4.18-0.8 kernel.

Your bug report does not really contain a wealth of information here..

Please update the bug report with a separate uncompressed file attachment
of your X config file, log file, and complete /var/log/messages which
contains full log since last reboot.  (attach rotated logs if need be).

Also provide the output of:

cat /proc/version
