That was as annoying as this. (See > https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14141 for details.) On a > second thought... that caused no data loss, this does... I will > upgrade to the latest .33 first (along with that 2.10.903). X crashing is no data loss. Data loss means you lost data you wrote. Crashing X means you didn't save soon enough. (See FS-related bugs, those are usually data loss. Or broken DB writes.) I know it's annoying, but still, it doesn't qualify as such. ;) Mraw, KiBi.
