Description Oswald Buddenhagen 2008-06-21 11:02:57 UTC
at kde startup (most likely kxkb init), the xserver crashes.
the only interesting thing seems to be the last log entry:
[xkb] BOGUS LENGTH in write keyboard desc, expected 6192, got 6208
(get the complete log without a crash from 
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=17282 )
it does not crash when it does not find the xkb data.

Log of the crash.

I also experience X crashing when using QEMU. Everything is fine most of the time, but sometimes hitting even one key while the QEMU window is active is enough to bring X down.

Xorg.0.log says that the server got bogus value, and crashed on signal 11 (SIGSEGV).
