Yes, I've had the same thing. It started happening when I moved to FC2, don't know if its an xorg/XF86 thing. I seem to find that each time I run a kernel up2date, then reinstall the nVidia drivers I need to reinstall UT2004 otherwise it kills the x session on exit.

Bizarre, haven't really spent any time trying to debug it, too busy 'killin' UT2004 N00Bs !!

It happens about 20% of the time on Mandrake 10 also. It doesnt bug me that much though cause I like to run UT2004 in a different X session so I can switch to my regular desktop while ingame and mess with xmms.

Linux Gamers has a good tutorial on how to run a second X session. Its probably easier to just post the link then try to explain it myself. http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/...p?articleid=43
