I do not know what is causing it.

Which graphics card do you have? And which driver? The symptoms sound much
like what I had with Etch, Nvidia 8600, Nvidia's closed driver - except that
it happened immediately upon start of X. Often (but not always) accompanied
with a kernel panic in the nvidia module.

I will try with my card on lenny, as soon as I get the time.
