Issue #1135 has been updated by Marion Hakanson.
File Xorg.0.log.old added
This Xorg freeze (or one exactly like what's described in issue 1161/1127) is still happening on two of my systems. Both run OI-151a now, and both have the nVidia driver version 280.13; The crash also happened under OI-148 with the same nVidia driver. One machine is 64-bit Intel Core i7 w/8GB RAM, GeForce 7300GT; The other is 32-bit Intel P4 w/2GB RAM, GeForce 6200.
When the problem occurs, mouse and keyboard input are ignored, but one can log remotely. You see the Xorg process using 100% CPU; Actually it shows in "prstat -m" as 33% USR, 33% LCK, 33% SLP. Usually restarting gdm is not sufficient, I think the nVidia card or driver is in an unhappy state, with some blocks of black & white bars on the screen after Xorg exits, so I usually just reboot the system.
Also, the Xorg.0.log shows entries like the ones below at the end, prior to killing it.
(WW) Oct 04 10:24:40 NVIDIA: WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000c290, 0x0000ca08)
(WW) Oct 04 10:24:47 NVIDIA: WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000c290, 0x0000ca08)
. . .
Let me know what kind of debug information I can collect, and how.

Since upgrading from 148a to our current 151 prerelease, I've had my X desktop appear to freeze once every few days, although the hardware cursor would continue to update on top of it. I had to restart the X server each time this happens. I'm using the intel driver on a "IGDNG_M": @pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x02 function 0x00: vendor 0x8086 device 0x0046
Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller@ embedded in a U3400 CULV processor.
Nothing is written to the X server log at the time.
