Bug#202251: xfs: X hangs up because of X Font Server

Package: xfs
Version: 4.1.0-16
Severity: normal

My XF86Config-4 begins with the standard section
Section "Files" 
        FontPath        "unix/:7100"                    # local font server 
        # if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc" 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic" 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled" 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled" 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1" 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo" 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi" 
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi" 

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.
