occasional kdm log-out and application closure crashes
There is this very annoying problem with my Slack installation (running Slack 10 with kernels 2.4.26 and 2.6.7). Sometimes, when I log out (using kdm) or close an application, the system just exits to a black screen, outputs the usual logout messages and stops on "Starting the X11 system manager". Although keyboard output is echoed to the screen, nothing useful happens, for there is no prompt. The system is only made re-useable again by using ctrl-alt-delete to reboot. The strange thing is that this occurs only some of the time. On other occasions, log-outs and application closures cause no problems. Is anyone experiencing this?
Sure can use some help to solve it.
