Not really, It kinda gets stuck in graphical mode. I try switching to a tty, 
and the x sessions stays on screen (even though I am on the tty, I can log 
in, type ^G and hear it) even though it's not accesable till i go back to the 
x tty. Also, when I type stuff, the display wraps around to the left as iff 
bits were being pushed into a buffer.

It should also be note that this happens mostly at random, and I have been 
unable to intentionaly reproduce it.

I ought to be able to upgrade X, mandrake installed 4.03, and I managed to 
get 4.10 working on my own.

Best back up my filesystem up first in case I screw things up
