Fatal server error:

waiting for X server to begin accepting connections 
giving up.
xinit:  Connection reset by peer (errno 104):  unable to connect to X
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.

That's the log produced after X crashes, screen goes blank and it starts
an endless loop tryin to restart.

I'v googled for a bit and found that this was a bug in earlier versions
of xserver-xorg-video-intel but was fixed. is it born again?
