Bug#202251: xfs: X hangs up because of X Font Server
My XF86Config-4 begins with the standard section
FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server
# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these
After a few minutes of playing with xfontsel, my X hanged up.
Keyboard and mouse didn't react on my action.
M-C-fX and M-C-Backspace didn't work too.
But it seems my computer was still alive because I was able connect to it
from a remote host. I did it and a top of top looked like this
24622 root 20 -10 326M 24M 10392 R < 99.2 2.4 38:22 XFree86
After I killed this process, my work station became absolutely unusable
and I rebooted it.
I'm not sure but it seems to me this happened because of broken X Font Server.
