I've been having this problem since upgrading to etch.  The crashes
happen once or twice a month, which is often enough to be really
irritating but too infrequent for me to know how to debug.

Restarting X remotely does seem to work, if the crash happens while my
(laptop) is on a network where I can ssh in.
