I was running AS1.8.9 on a matrox G400 and was experiencing similiar
both on XF86 4.1 and the default one that ships with Redhat 7.1
It got very annoying. I'd be working away and then, blam, I be staring at
the xdm
login prompt.

I upgraded to a different machine and went with a ATI Rage 128 instead. No
yet, been running it solid for almost a week now.

On thing of note though, I was unable to load the latest kernel drivers for
with the
matrox. I was able to load the Rage 128 ones, which is why I went with the
when I upgraded.
