Description Hans de Goede 2011-09-13 12:06:39 UTC
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a 64 bit F-15 vm, using spice of course
2. Make sure it is fully up2date
3. Login to the fallback gnome desktop
4. switch to a text VT
5. Wait a bit
Actual results:
Xorg crashes, and restarts taking you back to the gdm login screen

Expected results:
Being able to work on the text VT and then return to the open

Additional info:
I've been debugging this and the problem is that src/qxl_surface.c: qxl_surface_kill() gets called on a surface with a NULL host_image, moreover &surface->cache->all_images[id] != surface, so this smells like memory
corruption to me.

Duping to the newer report that's filed against F17
