The lockup problem itself appears to be a problem with either E or Gmc. Supposedly
this is being investigated by the folks at RHAD Labs. :-)
In regards to switching to console and having X get killed, are you by any chance
running the FrameBuffer driver version of X? I seem to recall it having a tendency
to lock up when switching to virtual terminals. At least it did it frequently
with my system. :)
