I can no longer reproduce the X server segfault.  However, killing a
fullscreen kq still leaves the X server in a broken state: it remains in the
video resolution that kq set, and xrandr cannot change modes (but it does not
complain or generate log messages either).  If I subsequently log out,
returning to gdm, the display becomes severely corrupted, possibly due to the
inability to restore the video mode.
