Hmm... OK. I hope that their maintainers won't say that the X server
shouldn't crash. However, it seems difficult to recover the session
as it was before the crash.

Lack of documentation. Since I didn't know what to put in this
file (it was in March 2001), I took the XF86Config of someone
else (that was written for the PowerBook G4). I'll change it
to "ati". If "r128" is deprecated or not better than "ati", it
should be said in the r128(4x) man page.

This is the first time it occurred (I couldn't find any other report
in my mail archives). I also looked for a core file (even though it
wouldn't really be useful without the debugging version), but there
was none.
