This is not a crash (segfault of the X server or so), this looks like a
lockup (the server is stuck somewhere and stop processing anything
else). So -dbg would probably not help, unless you can catch a segfault
Note that there are two lockups/hangs/crashes, both with output to the log. The first one happens sporadically and causes gdm to restart. Isn't that most probably a crash? The second one, when the new X server starts, may well be a lockup as you say. Wouldn't it be better to look at the first one to find the cause here? The first clue in the log is: "Error in I830WaitLpRing(), timeout for 2 seconds".
I haven't had the problem again (after ~10 hours of use) since I downgraded to 2.1.1-4.

You probably want 2.1.1-4, it is available from
You won't have to downgrade xserver-xorg-core if you take this one.
It this problem easy to reproduce? Did you switch to/from a virtual
console right before it happened? You seem to have some VT switch
related messages in your log.
It is not even sure that the "page table error" is related to the
problem. Can you check whether the "page table error" appears when the
lockup occurs and not earlier?
I might have switched to terminal, but I think I have had sessions that crashed without any switches to terminal. I can't force the crash to happen exactly when I want, but it happens quite regularly about every 2 hours.
