well it's not nvidia or ati, as my graphics card is Intel Integrated Graphics (845G chipset).  Yeah I know, I need to build a new PC, budget problems... :-(

could be xorg bug. :)

You're probably right -- I doubt this actually crashes Linux per se, just puts it in a state where you can't access the console -- but I'm not really set up with my network to do that, a PC set up as a dumb terminal on the serial port would be another way to do that, but still not set up for that. :) although I do have an IBM PC model 5150 that could be used for this purpose if dusted off and loaded with proper software... ;-)
