x mysteriously crashed


/var/log/messages
Code:
Apr 24 19:40:12 Northstar kdm[2584]: pam_unix2: session finished for user elyon, service xdm 
Apr 24 19:40:12 Northstar resmgr[1441]: accepted connection from user root
Apr 24 19:40:12 Northstar resmgr[1441]: disconnect from root
Apr 24 19:40:13 Northstar su: pam_unix2: session finished for user root, service su 
Apr 24 19:40:16 Northstar kernel: mtrr: 0xb0000000,0x8000000 overlaps existing 0xb0000000,0x4000000
Apr 24 19:40:31 Northstar kdm[13046]: pam_unix2: session started for user elyon, service xdm 
Apr 24 19:40:31 Northstar resmgr[1441]: accepted connection from user root
Apr 24 19:40:31 Northstar resmgr[1441]: disconnect from root
Apr 24 19:41:18 Northstar su: (to root) elyon on /dev/pts/0
Apr 24 19:41:18 Northstar su: pam_unix2: session started for user root, service su
Is something punting me off my system, or was this just a weird incident?
I think it MAY have something to do with the power, but if the building has power problems, wouldnt my whole computer restart, and not just X? BTW i was su'ed into root when this happened, i think.

1) these logs wont help, they are just various messages from the kernel, and logins and such with xdm, and su

2) did you press control-alt-del ?
