With only 2 differences: I do not have the fonts you are using for
Tabs and I do not run gdm. Anyway, I cannot reproduce with these
steps: XMoban keeps on running.

These steps always lead to a crash of the X server? It could be related
to something else? The log doesn't tell anything, unluckily.

running 6.6.1 but I hardly believe this is the issue. 

Hope someone comes up with a way to reproduce it regularly. For the
time being there's very little I can do.

(Anyway I don't see where a bug that could make X crash can be hidden
in Tabbed.hs. I've been able to make X die quite a few time when
hacking that code, so I should have a bit of experience...;-)

All the best,
