xorg_configure log with backtrace
Description of problem:
If you'll execute Xorg -configure "from console" on RHEL 5.5 qemu-kvm guest using spice (qxl driver) then you'll get "black console" with no output being showed.
However blind execution of /sbin/init 5 returns me back to the Xorg (so input works well).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. switch to the console
2. be sure that xorg is not running
3. run Xorg -configure
0: Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x71) [0x4958c1]

4: Xorg(InitOutput+0x675) [0x463ee5]
5: Xorg(main+0x26f) [0x43358f]
6: /lib64/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xf4) [0x318281d994]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting
Console does not return any output
Server should not be killed. Console should return output as usually
Console is not returning any output after switching back to console.
Can you try again with the server and driver in 6.1?
I run into the same issue with xorg-x11-drv-qxl-0.0.12-5.el6.x86_64, xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.7.7-28.el6.x86_64 (@el6.1)
So it does happen also in 6.1
