I pushed the "X" button to close a Mozilla frame via the WM. I don't
know if it's a segv or what; it just suddenly snicks out, then `gdm'
restarts. Once it was this version, another time before it was the
previous (?) phase 2 binary.
Has this happened to anyone else?
I think that has happened to me once, but three or four times I have waken
up to find that my X session has reset in the middle of the night (I tend
to stay logged in for days/weeks at a time).
The last two times that has happened coincided with network outages (cable
modem reset the first time, router turned off and disassembled last night)
This morning, I woke up to find that Enlightenment now believes that my X
server no longer has XSHM support. I don't know which version of the X
packages I'm running, I upgraded last night. Also, it seems like DPMS
works with xdm, but not with Enlightenment. I'm using the stock Matrox
Any ideas with these issues?
 our router is an old PowerMac, used because it was the spare computer
in the house -- and therefore less expensive than building a dedicated
Debian box. As it is, for 5 machines, we have 4 networks, 4+ operating
systems, 4 dedicated hubs/bridges/translators, etc.
