Ok, it looks like I was able to replicate the crash that kicks me out to
the login prompt. This time I was running a "Fetch System Ports Tree"
(System Manager > Tasks tab) and just let it sit for like 10 minutes or
so. I didn't want to log in for fear of it doing something to the
.xsession-errors file so I tried to plug in a flash drive and drop down
to terminal via CTRL-ALT-F1 and copy it up but when I did it corrupted
the screen and I had no mouse nor could I back out. All I could do was
punch the power button and things did seem to shut down gracefully
albeit with nothing showing as much on my monitor. In any case, I have
the .xsession-errors file after I logged back into the machine. Do you
want it or would it not be of any use to you?
