All is fine until I exit (shutdown) one X session, then the other
running X session freezes and then after a little while crashes. Any
ideas on how to find or diagnose what's causing this issue are much

I don't know about how you shutdown a terminal, me I just ctrl+d and
it logs out.

That sounds like you're talking about an xterm, not X.

Well if the OP is starting multi-X as the same user, that's not advisable, from what I read, different users are okay and currently there maybe problems if plasma is involved, also from what I read.

And yes, I was posting about simple logout and nothing about stopping X.

Now I'll just listen and learn.
