X server stuck keyboard completely
- While debugging (in user mode of course) some C files
and causing some segfaults I found that occasionaly my
X server is stuck (probably somehow the segfault
corrupted its inner variables) and either no reply
from keyboard is allowed or only the kill server
(Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) it should be noted howeer that
some proccesses still kept going noticabley the clock
and icewin's resource checker, sometimes the pointer
was 'stuck' with ddd's symbol but always movable. This
obviously shouldn't happen but (1) why did it happen,
(2) how can I handle such a thing afterwards (no
network so sshd is not an option) without cold booting
my machine, (3) how can I prevent such occurences in
I'm running a PII Mandrake 9.0 icewin+emacs+ddd+xterm
Xfree 4.?? (I'll check it out if neccessary).
