lxde/openbox restarts computer

Using sidux linux with xfce4.

Installed the great lxde X11 window manager yesterday. Very fast and small footprint on memory.

However,From time to time (randomly) the computer restarts. I thought this might be lxde but then managed to drill down to the fact that the restarts occured when using openbox (the WM in lxde). Fluxbox also causes restarts.

If I go back to xfce everything is fine (bar xterm app errors - see below - lxterminal is fine though)

I managed to grab this error before one of the restarts...but it is related to xterm which doesnt work properly in xfce either!
