It means that the X-Server just terminated without an error in runlevel
5, which causes a normal shutdown at the end of xsession. That means
that either your desktop session manager just ended (causing the
X-Server to terminate as well), or the X-Server was terminated
abnormally but without an error return code. You should, for debugging
purposes, just disable the shutdown in /etc/init.d/xsession, and look
for errors in your .xsession-errors when the crash happens.
