I doubt anybody can say something about this without the output of
the X server. Include also such information like: Can you kill it
with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace? If not, can you reboot with Ctrl-Alt-Del?
If not, does Alt-SysRq-k kill X? If not, can you reboot with the
sequence Alt-SysRq-s (sync disks), Alt-SysRq-u (remount filesystems
readonly), Alt-SysRq-b (reboot)?


PS: You would probably get better answers in an X newsgroup. Maybe
they´ll tell you to get the original X server from www.XFree96.org to
make sure that this isn´t a compiler bug.

PPS: Yes, I had an X problem too :-)
