I have:
Section "ServerFlags"
        Option "DontZap"        "off"

from the man page:
 Option "DontZap"  "boolean"
              This disallows the use of the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace sequence.  That
              sequence is normally used to terminate the  Xorg  server.   When
              this option is enabled, that key sequence has no special meaning
              and is passed to clients.  Default: off.
