I was playing with a Dell ST2220T touchscreen display. I also have a regular mouse. I may have been alternating between the two when the crash happened.
(I'm reporting this with abrt-gui because the submission failed on the first go around. abrt-gui shows 10 X.org server crashes that I could report, all at the same minute.)
OS Release: Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)
I don't understand the bug, but an interesting message in the Xorg.0.log is:
[ 16028.790] BUG: triggered 'if (!(event->device_event.flags & (1 << 5)))'
[ 16028.790] BUG: touch.c:625 in TouchConvertToPointerEvent()
[ 16028.790] Non-emulating touch event
Googling for the second line gets a few interesting hits:
The second suggests that a later X server (xorg-x11-server-1.13.0-7.fc18) would prevent this.
The first may be a repeat of the second.
The third contains a suggested debian change (from Ubuntu) that actually gets rid of the function printing this message.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.
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 17'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 17 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, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
