I'm sorry if this sounds cranky (it's not intended to be, but I have the
impression that I often come across this way), but _please_ offer more
info than this when you get a crash.

The README included with all distros includes some instruction on how to
redirect the output of messages to a file.  If you have a crash, _no-one
can help you unless you offer some info on what happened_.  "It crashed"
is not information; it's just a bit of gossip.

X provides piles of info on what is happening while it is running: 
what all that text is all over the console whence you start X.  In order
to tell what the problem is, developers need that information.  Even if
you've never used X until this week, you too can help with development,
just by reporting _detailed_ bug reports.  So, please, if you're getting
crashes, start X with the output sent to a file, and then post the
relevant data here.
