Bug#640699: keyboard problem with xserver xfbdev: why does it not work?

Xorg does not work on my system, it does crash on exit; i am not able to know the cause. The screen make black, i am not able to change session (by ctrl+alt+f1-f6), to kill it (by ctrl+alt+space), the only way is to reboot the system by pressing ctrl+alt+del. I have only "4mb video ram" but i use a very minimal desktop enviroment (a file manager called tkdesk and xterm) so this should not be the main cause. Why does it crash?

I have installed on my small laptop xfbdev xserver, because the xorg
xserver does not work on my system. I have changed the link
/usr/bin/X to /usr/bin/Xfbdev (the same /etc/X11/X to
/usr/bin/Xfbdev) then i have edit the /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc
script just including the following:

Xfbdev is unmaintained, you're really better off using Xorg.
