[vox-tech] xdm died unprovokedly



I left my computer for an hour and a half to eat dinner and attend an 
important meeting and while I was gone XDM died without a trace, except 
for the contents of /var/log/xdm.log, and I had to go root to restart 
XDM. This has happened to me once before that I am aware of.

I have enclosed /var/log/xdm.log. Does anybody have any idea what my 
problem might be? 

(Come to think of it, I'm about to upgrade to -4 from unstable, which 
says it "fixes server crash when a screen fails to initialise". I wonder 
if this is what's happening.)
