I also use i810 and see this behaviour only when trying to restart the X
server from within X. Going to a VT first and running "/etc/init.d/kdm
restart" works, though. However, shutting down from within X works.
I also use the framebuffer to get a nice VT and I actually blame the crappy
video output situation under linux for this.
Try without framebuffer, without DRI and without XVMC support and maybe that
