I'd like to add my voice and report that I've been experiencing
intermittent crashing too, as of the last few days (perhaps since the
weekend?). I'll investigate further later and try to pin it down a
bit more but roughly:
- ghc 6.6, latest everything from darcs
- Tabbed layout
- xdm not gdm
- gajim and jpilot both seem particularly keen culprits.
Often/sometimes when closing a window belonging to either of these
apps using Shift-Mod-C I get kicked out. I might only be seeing
it with these apps because in other apps (eg xterm), I tend not to
close/kill the window from xmonad, but rather exit the app from
within itself (eg Ctrl-D in an xterm, File/Quit in Firefox, etc.);
it does _seem_ to be related to killing from xmonad.
- .xsession-errors contains similar errors to those reported just
earlier ("such-and-such app lost connection to X server", though I
note that "such-and-such app" in these cases is not the one which
crashed, but other ones which were running - IIRC).
Don't have time to go any deeper right now (and not at the crashing
computer), but will try to find out more later.
