Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have the xfce Compositor running, maybe thats why I am having problems with Xfce when others are not. Reading the bug reports you linked to having a compositor makes this issue more prominent. I will leave it turned on for now, with the xorg.conf fix you mentioned above and see if the situation improves.
Another thing I just did as suggested in the xorg bug report was to increase QUEUE_SIZE in mieq.c to 4096 and recompile Xorg using the slackbuild. Just a note that Xorg must be suid root. So, 'chmod u+s /usr/bin/Xorg' after installing if needed.
Hopefully one of these fixes will work.

Distribution: Currently doing embedded linux so.... Buildroot? ;-)
Same problem On Fedora
For what it's worth, I have experienced the same lockup with Xorg on Fedora Core 14:
[1470056.288] [mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop.
However, every time I do experience it, I have been able to ssh into my FC14 machine from another machine and kill the instance of Xorg, though it seems that only SIGKILL works. I was hoping to find another way that won't kill the desktop but so far I haven't found any
