Try using the SVGA server instead... it's supposed to be less buggy. From
what I've read, the s3v server will be going away in future anyway.

Having said that, I get intermittent crashes on exitting the X server too.
Were I feeling charitable, I would say the Virge hardware has a problem
switching back to text mode.

What you *can* do is use a 2.2 kernel with the Magic SysRq feature turned
on, and then you can kill processes, unmount your filesystems, sync and reboot
cleanly. Otherwise you're stuck with the wait-for-flush-then-press-RESET
lark, which is no fun at all.
